Humans have explored the Moon, Mars, and of course, Earth. But what do we know about Jupiter?
For the most part, this gas giant is a mystery. So what would happen if you wanted to discover it for yourself and jumped right onto the planet? Or should we say into? Because Jupiter doesn't have a surface, just a seemingly endless stretch of atmosphere.
Would you fall straight through? What would you see on your way? And how would it make you feel?
