 How fast a rocket must go to leave planet

  This graphic showing  ....

Gravity makes it possible for us to live on Earth, but it also makes it pretty hard to leave.

Satellites fight gravity by going just fast enough to free-fall around the planet indefinitely, like the International Space Station, with many traveling at speeds of more than 17,500 mph.But if you want to leave this planet, you have to go faster. This speed is called the escape velocity.

 Jupiter:- You'd have to reach an unthinkable 135,000 mph because the planet is twice as massive
