Episode Details

Continuing the tempo and the comparative approach used in the previous lesson, this lesson on the Jovian worlds features planetary astronomers who explain how these massive gas giants formed in the cool outer regions of our solar system. This lesson is not limited to just the four Jovian planets of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune but includes their satellite systems and the exciting research involved in seeking possible life on these distant, cold worlds.
