Kore, Moon of Jupiter

Kore is a Moon that orbits round Jupiter rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 149,532,006.36 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 32,603,109 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 14,986,684,330,972 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.6 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.6 g/cm3. It was discovered on 8 February 2003 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 24,486,000 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The mass of the object is calculated at being 14,986,684,330,972 kg. The equatorial circumference of Kore is 6.3 km. The mean radius of Kore is 1.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Kore is 12.57 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.001 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 8,022.8 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Kore orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 145.043 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.3315, it is the degree at which Kore orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
