Jupiter is a planet in the Sol system. Earthlings should be aware that the gravity is much higher and that there is no solid ground.

Travel Warning WARNING: The magnetic field surrounding Jupiter is very dangerous. Bring a heavy suit to protect yourself.

If you need to land, do so on one of the 60+ moons. Io is mostly volcanic and an eruption may occur suddenly. Europa may have signs of life, so try not to contaminate it with your ship. Ganymede is larger than Mercury and produces its own (weak) magnetic field. Callisto is a rocky, dead world. If you plan to explore the atmosphere, try not to go too deep lest you want your plane crushed. Also avoid high winds, especially hurricanes.
