What are unusual features of Saturn?
Saturn has a couple of very unusual features. First, it has rings. LOTS of rings. Big, showy, lovely rings, probably made mostly of ice. The other gas giant planets also have rings, but they are little and dark, and hardly visible. Second, the density of Saturn is very low for a planet. The gasses that make up Saturn are mostly helium and hydrogen, and they take up a lot of space without adding much mass. The overall density of Saturn is actually less than 1, where 1 is the same density as water. If there were a bathtub big enough, Saturn would float.
