Beyond Mars lie four colorful giant planets made almost entirely of gases. The planets have thick atmospheres, lots of moons and rings, low densities, and rapid rotations, but they lack a defined, solid surface on which an astronaut might walk. Each gas giant is distinctive. Immense Jupiter is 1,400 times larger than Earth, Saturn has wide, colorful rings, Uranus lies on its side, and Neptune is so far away that sunlight reaching it is 900 times weaker than on Earth.
