Jupiter's volume is about 1,400 times that of the Earth, according to NASA. The huge gaseous world's volume is half again bigger than all of the solar system's other planets, moons, asteroids, and comets combined.

The giant planet is 88,730 miles in diameter, which is 11.2 times that of Earth. It is 317.8 times more massive than Earth.

Jupiter's huge storm, called the Great Red Spot, is itself so big you could stuff two Earths into it.

Jupiter is not the be-all end-all, however. Several planets more massive than Jupiter have been found around other stars.
