Flash Facts: Jupiter's Rotation

"The rotational speed of Jupiter is so great at its equator (27,000 mi/hr) that there is a noticeable bulge at the planet's equator (and consequently a flattening at the poles)."

Illustration: "Jupiter's rapid rotation--two views of the planet taken one hour apart."
