Questions about Jupiter
« on: 02/02/2008 08:00:17 »
I am currently working ona game that takes place within the atmosphere of Jupiter and I need to know a few facts about Jupiter.

1. What is the average wind speed in Jupiter's upper atmosphere? what is the high? the low?

2. What is the pressure in the inner depths of Jupiter. It wouls be preferable to have what the pressure is at thepoint in which it is predicted that Jupiter's solid core is expected to be. Like what the pressure is on that solid core?

3. What is the standard storm on Jupiter?

4. What is the lightning like in Jupiter like how much is there? and do we know the likely voltage of these bolts of lightning.

thanks for any help in advance.
