Saturn By Davin Stevens

Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun with one of the longest and largest orbits.

Saturn is one of the four Gas Giants in the solar system. It is the second biggest planet in our solar system.

Saturn has a lot of rings. Saturn has seven main rings and four groups of rings. There are even more rings and those ones are thin.

Saturn's core is said to be rocky but people that are studying Saturn suspect it may be liquid.

Is human travel possible: Human travel is not possible right now. The reason for this is that there is a thick layer of gas that would penetrate any sort of armor that is on the vehicle. Even if we made it past that there would be nowhere to land sense the whole surface or Saturn is liquid.

This is what Saturn's outer surface would look like if we ever made it to Saturn.

The first person to discover Saturn was Galileo Galilei in 1610 with the first telescope. People could already see Saturn, Galileo Galilei was the first one to observe a Saturn and discover Saturn's rings.

We have sent Probes to Saturn and Saturn's moons. The latest one was Cassini. Cassini was launched in 1997. It reached Saturn on June 30, 2004.

Where does Saturn's name come from: Saturn's name comes from the Greek god Saturnus, the god of agriculture and harvest.

This is part of the description for Saturn.

Saturn has 62 moons orbiting around. 9 are still being officially named. The 6 largest moons Of Saturn are Titan, Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Hyperion, and Lapetus.







Saturn's atmosphere is 96% Hydrogen and 3% helium. This makes Saturn less dense then our planet, the density on Saturn is 12% of our density. Saturn is the least dense planet in the solar system.

Temperatures on Saturn range to -288 degrees fahrenheit that's really cold. The weather is also as bad as the temperature. The wind speeds can be up to 1800 km. Thunder and lightning are causal on any part of the planet.

Here are some interesting facts about Saturn: Saturn takes 29 Earth years to orbit around the Sun.

Saturn is about 9.5 times larger than Earth.
