Caption: Jupiter and its moons. Computer artwork of a view across the outer most clouds of Jupiter, towards two of its moons, Io (upper right) and Europa (upper centre). A giant lightning bolt can be seen between the cloud layers. At this altitude the atmospheric pressure is just a few millibars, about the same as that on the surface of Mars. Beneath the clouds lies a turbulent realm of molecular hydrogen and helium. Go deeper yet and this atmosphere eventually gives way to a deep, planet-wide ocean of liquid hydrogen.
