A Jovian Planet (often called "gas giants") is a giant gaseous planet with an overall composition of Hydrogen, Helium, and Hydrogen compounds, with a density less than 2 g/cm3. Unlike Terrestrial planets, each Jovian planet rotates quickly and is orbited by rings and satellites.[1][2]

Our Solar System has four Jovian planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus.
