A fundamental property that a planet can have is if it is encompassed by radiation belts of highly energetic electrons and ions approaching light speed. The radiation belts of Jupiter and Saturn differ from Earth’s Van Allen belts not only in their extent and intensity but also in the physical processes governing them. We will explain the physics of giant planet radiation belts based on data from space missions as Juno and Cassini, and show examples of recent and ongoing studies.
