History of Jupiter

"Jupiter took shape when the rest of the solar system formed about 4.5 billion years ago, when gravity pulled swirling gas and dust in to become this gas giant. ... About 4 billion years ago, Jupiter settled into its current position in the outer solar system, where it is the fifth planet from the Sun" - NASA

Geography of Jupiter

Since Jupiter is not a terristreal planet, its surface is not solid like earth's, rather made of a sea of different gasses.

Humans and Jupiter

Although it is impossible to land humans on Jupiter, this planet has been explored from afar, and more is known about Jupiter than about many of the other planets in the Solar System.
