King of the Planets
The most massive planet in our solar system -- with dozens of moons and an enormous magnetic field -- Jupiter forms a kind of miniature solar system. It resembles a star in composition, but did not grow big enough to ignite. The planet's swirling cloud stripes are punctuated by massive storms such as the Great Red Spot, which has raged for hundreds of years.

Q
Kelvin (K)

0 Kelvin is absolute zero; Water Ice melts at 273 K (= 00C = 320F); Water boils at 373 K (= 1000C = 2120F).

Kepler, Johannes (1571-1630)
