Which is the biggest planet
If you're counting planets orbiting stars other than the Sun, the biggest planet we've found yet is named TrES-4. TrES-4 is like a big fluffy ball: It's 1.7 times as big as Jupiter, but only has 0.8 the mass.
We'll find bigger planets the longer we look. It's hard to spot them with our current equipment because planets don't reflect much light, so we mostly find them by looking at the various ways they interact with their star. We were only able to spot TrES-4 because it passes right between our telescopes and its star (GSC 02620-00648, in the Hercules constellation) every time it completes its 3.5-day orbit.
It would be at least 100 times heavier, since it has to be at least as dense as the sun. In reality, it'd be even heavier than that even if it had the same composition, since it would have higher gravity, which would compress it further.
So no, there are no planets "100 times the size of our sun". They can't get many times larger than jupiter before they turn into stars themselves.
"there are planets over 100 times the size of our sun out there"
Um, no. Anything with much more mass than jupiter is heavy enough that the pressure at the center starts fusion and it turns into a star. There are stars with mass over 100 times our sun's, which may be what you're thinking of.

In our solar system, I believe it is Jupiter.
YES it is Jupitor.. FYI.. The red dot on it is a storm.. Like huricane... it is larger than the earth and has been going for over 300 years.. Google search it.. you will be amazed
yep, in our solar system its jupiter but its certainly not the biggest in the universe there are planets over 100 times the size of our sun out there
Yes, but the sun is largely made of hydrogen, which is the lightest element. Anything larger than it must therefore be heavier than it.
yeah it would be heavier, but if it was 100 times bigger, it wouldnt make it 100 times heavier
but just because somethings bigger than something else doesnt mean its heavier as well
well I think its jupiter but I would make it uranus. :DDD
Yeah, I'm pretty sure its Jupiter.
no its sep 11,2008,10:36
Jupiter all right.
