A:
Yes, there is gas on other planets. In fact, the planets in our solar system out past Mars: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, are made mostly of gas. Even the other inner planets: Mercury, Venus and Mars, have some gas on them. Not all planets have the same amount of gas, some have very little, but all the planets have in our solar system have at least some.
Thank you for your question.
