Internal structure of Jupiter, cutaway computer artwork. The Earth is at lower right at the same scale. Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. It is a gas giant, but the name is slightly misleading. It has a core of solid rock and ice (brown), then a thick layer liquid metallic hydrogen (orange) and a layer of liquid hydrogen (green), which underlies the gaseous atmosphere.
