Jupiter Revealed
SBS  |  May 3, 2020

Professor Kaitlin Kratter shows us how extreme Jupiter is. She's come to a quarry to measure out each planet's mass with rocks, starting with the smallest. Mercury is a single kilogram, and the Earth is 17. But Jupiter is on another scale entirely. It's seven tonnes, that's two and a half times the mass of all the other planets combined. On Kaitlin's scale it's not a pile of rocks, it's the truck delivering them.
