Planet Saturn

Parent Category: The Solar System
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun, and the second largest planet in the solar system. The planet is prominent for its nine rings. It has at least 31 moons, including Titan, Mimas, Enceladus, Hyperion, Rhea, and Phoebe.
The Romans knew of seven bright objects in the sky, the sun, the moon and five brightest planets. They named them after their most important gods. Saturn was named after the Roman god of agriculture. According to myth, Saturn introduced agriculture to his people by teaching them how to farm the land...
Pan, Atlas, Prometheus, Pandora, Epimetheus, Janus, Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Telesto, Calypso, Dione, Helene, Rhea, Titan Hyperion, Iapetus, Phoebe, and twelve unnamed moons.
Saturn has an average temperature of -288 degrees Fahrenheit. It is  slightly warmer around its equator and the planet experiences winds  of up to 1,000 miles per hour.
Yes, our Sun is Saturn's star. You see, our planets, Mercury through Neptune, all orbit the Sun. So even if they have different natural satellites, like the Moon for the Earth and Phobos for Mars, they all have the same Star, or in this case, the Sun.
because the material in them is so tiny
Titan is the biggest of the 52 known moons orbiting Satern. It is a cold world enclosed by a thick, hazy atmosphere impenetrable by telescopes and cameras. With an equatorial radius of 2,575 kilometers (1,600 miles), Titan is the second largest moon in our solar system. It's bigger than our own...
There is no oxygen on the planet of Saturn. IF and WHEN you ever actually got to Saturn, not only would you freeze from the ice cold temperatures, but the gases (hydrogen and helium) would choke you to death. :(
Saturn is the name of the Greek titan "Kronos"
No. Saturn has 62 known moons.
the rotation time for saturn is 48 hours.
None. Saturn is a planet orbiting about the sun called Sol, which itself is one of several hundred billion stars that make up a galaxy. The Milky Way Galaxy.
A year of a planet is the length of time it takes to revolve the sun. Saturn takes 10,832 Earth days (29.66 Earth years) to go around the Sun.
Saturn has a light orange look with white and gray rings.Saturn is: A gas giant (planet) with many moons. Saturn is also an automobile brand that is generally considered a gas miser. Avril means "April" in French.
Yes, the equation p2 = a3, where p is a planet's orbital period in years and a is the planet's average distance from the Sun in AU. This equation allows us to calculate the mass of a distance object if we can observe another object orbiting it and measure the orbiting object's orbital period and...
Nobody invented Saturn; it formed by natural process. Since Saturn  can be seen with the naked eye it does not have a discoverer  either.
Saturn has only been visited by unmanned probes.
About 29.5 Earth years.

Mercury points to a career in communications or transportation, while Venus suggests a career centralized on the social graces, beauty, art...
There are no people on it. That means it is unmanned.
Since Saturn is considerably larger than Earth, you wouldn't be able to build a life-size model anywhere on our planet.
This is trivially calculated from the distance in kilometers, and varies from 1.35 trillion meters (1.35 x1012 m) to 1.51 trillion meters (1.51 x 1012 m).
Yes, it is very bright. Keep trying and you will see it. You have to look in the right place at the right time. See link below:
The Cassini-Huygens mission was launched to the Saturnian System on October 15th, 1997. The probe that landed on the moon Titan was named Huygens, the orbiter was named Cassini. Huygens entered Titan's atmosphere On January 14, 2005 at 9:06 UTC. Huygens landed at 11:24, on the same day.
No. It is the biggest, but Enceladus is more beautiful.
The answer is -285 degrees Fahrenheits. Also it is -175 degree Celsius
Saturn is -270 degrees or higher or less
A Saturn year is equivalent to 29.7 Earth years. It takes Saturn  10,832 Earth days to complete a single orbit around the sun.      Saturn's year is 29.447498 Earth years long, which is about 10,756 Earth days.
Saturn does not have a definitive revolution period due to it just  being a ball of gases. This causes parts of Saturn to move at  different speeds.
 Saturn is so yellow because of the sun reflecting of it and plus it is a tan color
Saturn's atmosphere is composed of mostly hydrogen. It also  consists of helium, ammonia, and methane. Nitrogen and oxygen are  small elements mixed within the atmosphere as well.
Yes. because since it is made up of alot of hydrogen and a little  bit of
Neptune is considered an outer planet. The other outer planets are  Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter. The dwarf planet Pluto is also in this  category.
Saturn is known as one of the gas giants. Its atmosphere is  primarily made of hydrogen and helium, with small amounts of other  gases such as methane.
it takes about 10 hours and 39 mintues.           HOLY CHEESE WHIZ! IKR

Sour gas is a natural fuel gas that has high concentration of H 2 S (hydrogen sulfide). The sulfide gives the gas an unpleasant odour like that of rotting eggs. When burned sour gas releases SO2 (sulfur dioxide) an acid gas that can corrode metals. Acid are often referred to as sour as the origin of...
Saturn is a planet, it is not made of fabric.
in the feuture Saturn will explode
no one knows so stop asking!
  i believe it rotates counterclockwise
Scientists are currently researching this and haven't proven much yet. I believe it is very likely to contain some form of life but most likely a plant in suspended animation because it is so cold, probably lasting thousands of years. The surface of titan is covered in an orange substance known as...
no. no solid surface. unless you can walk on gas that is.

Saturn's rings are made up of dust, rocks , asteroids, and moons.
It Is the planet with most rings in the whole solar system
== Answer ==   The Earth is (As of May 2000) thought to be approximately 5.972 sextillion (5,972,000,000,000,000,000,000) metric tons. A metric ton is a thousand kilograms, or 2,204.62 pounds.     Approximately 6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (6E+24) kilograms.
The mean density of Saturn is 0.687 g/cm³ For comparison, the density of water is about 0.970 g/cm³. This means if you could find a bath big enough, Saturn would float in water.
It takes nearly 11000 Earth days or 29 and a half Earth years.
  Uranus Saturn is about 1.4 billion miles from the Sun Uranus is about 2.8 billion miles from the Sun
The average distance of Saturn from the sun is approximately 1,435,000,000 kilometers. The shortest distance (perihelion) is about 1,352,000,000 kilometers, and the greatest distance (aphelion) is about 1,517,000,000 kilometers.
Saturn (Greek Kronos) is the father of the original gods (Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto, Juno, etc). He was defeated by Jupiter, and has lain in a thousand pieces ever since
it has an atmosphere higher than the other outer planets
Saturn's orbit shape is elliptical
moons or moonlets. (I've put moon in lower case to differentiate with our Moon which is always in upper case)
Typically it was in the upper $19,000's to low $20,000's.
A "day" on Saturn is the time it takes to make one rotation about its axis. It spins very quickly, and takes from 10 hours, 32 minutes to 10 hours, 47 minutes depending on the latitude (the polar regions spin at a slower rate).   (see the related link)        
It is also known that it is the second biggest planet in our Solar System.
Some interesting things to do while you visit Saturn would be for one you could go ring hopping. Another thing you could do is para-sailing, because Saturn is one of the four gas gaints. The final thing that I could think of doing in Saturn is watching Jupitar go through it's phases, thats something...
8.833 A.U. from earth
yesmany poisonous gases like methane are there!
there is one artificial satellite in orbit around Saturn called Cassini--Huygens, which entered orbit around the planet in 2004. Its still there now and may carry on orbiting the planet until 2017 and beyond.Saturn has over 60 known natural satellites.
the earth is turns around the sun and the moon is turns around of the earth
It is made of 96.3% hydrogen and 3.25% helium, as well as small amounts of methane, ammonia, hydrogen deuteride, ethane, water, and ammonia hydrosulfide.
The length from the Earth to Saturn is 900,352,674.
It takes about 29.46 Earth years for Saturn to orbit around our sun.
im pretty sure that saturn has more than 11 rings 
It depends on where you are ,but yes.It has a faint green glow which makes it stand out from all other objects in the sky but most importantly, its those huge rings of ice and rock surrounding it that makes it clear that what you are observing is this planet.
go to Saturn and find out yourselfNEW PERSON WRITING: I don't know honestly sorry...i just wanted to point out that the last answer was stupid and ignore it...
The colored rings of Saturn are composed of many small particles.  These particles are made up of for the most part of a watery ice.  They also contain some rocky material as well.
God of the Sowing and Protector of Harvest and husband of Ops and father of Vesta,Juno,Ceres,Dis and Jupiter,identfied with the Greek Cronus.
He was the first to see them, but he thought they were big moons. His telescope was not powerful enough for him to realize they were rings. Christian Huygens was the first to realize they were rings.
Hydrogen - 96.3%Helium - 3.25%Methane - 0.4%Ammonia - 0.01%Hydrogen Deuteride - 0.01%Ethane - 0.0007%
Saturn is one of five planets that you can see in the night sky  without a telescope. The others are Mercury, Venus, Mars, and  Jupiter. Anyone who spent a good deal of time watching the night  sky would realize that these objects moved relative to the  background of stars.
Saturn haves the biggest ring in our solar system.
Satellites ~ 200 observed (61 with secure orbits)
Saturn's ring are made up of mainly rock particles and ice. Saturn has several broad rings. Each large ring is composed of thousands of thin ringlets. These are the rings that are composed of countless ice and rock particles. These particles range in size from a speck of dust to tens of meters...
Saturn was noticed thousands of years ago by ancient human sky watchers.It's so obvious that it didn't really need to be "discovered".
it rotates on its axis.
Saturn's seasons are just like Earth's. The planet has winter,  summer, spring and fall, however, each season last for seven years.
No. Space junk consists of fragments of spacecraft left in space.  Saturn is a planet.
