Chaldene (kal-dee'-nee, Greek Χαλδηνη?) (Jupiter XXI) is a natural satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered by a team of astronomers from the University of Hawaii led by Scott S. Sheppard, et al. in 2000, and given the temporary designation S/2000 J 10. Chaldene is about 3.8 kilometres in diameter, and orbits Jupiter at an average distance of 22,713 Mm in 699.327 days, at an inclination of 145 to the ecliptic (120 to Jupiter's equator), in a retrograde direction and with an eccentricity of 0.2916.

It is named after Chaldene, the mother of Solymos by Zeus in Greek mythology.

It belongs to the Carme group, made up of irregular retrograde moons orbiting Jupiter at a distance ranging between 23 and 24 Gm and at an inclination of about 165.
