The ship Jupiter was a merchant vessel of unknown origin. She was named after the planet Jupiter. The Jupiter, like the Tangayika, was a victim of a series of severe storms that moved across the globe. One storm caused the Jupiter to be driven ashore and wrecked. However, none of her crew were killed. She was never seen in any Tintin books. The only mention of the Jupiter was in a radio broadcast in the book The Crab with the Golden Claws.
