Saturn's Rings consist of individually orbiting bits of ice and rock ranging in size from grains of sand to boulders the size of a large house. Also dust particles circle around at top speed.

Saturn is the only planet in the universe that has a ring around it. Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune do not have rings. The rings around Saturn is as a result of the large gases.
