The term "gas giant" for jupiter and similar planets always seemed a bit odd to me. Afterall they are mostly just gigantic balls of liquid for the most part and only a small outer atmosphere is gas. I mean sure the atmosphere is thicker than much smaller planets but its still made up of mostly liquid.
@freemo To be fair, Earth is about 2/3rd liquid (and we're not talking about the water on the surface), and yet we still call it 'Earth' anyway. So Jupiter gets a free pass on the gas giant thing!
