Best Answer

Saturn is the second largest planet in our solar system and the sixth in distance from the Sun. It is mostly gaseous with large "rings" of ice and rocks. It has more than 60 moons, the inner ones small and within the ring system. The outer hydrogen atmosphere is very cold, as low as -200 °C. But the small rocky core is heated by presssure to over 11700°C.

Saturn cannot support life because the dense liquid hydrogen has incredibly high pressure at greater depths and may form a mantle of solid hydrogen.

Saturn's orbit is 900 million miles (1.5 billion km) from the sun, compared to Earth at 93 million miles (149 million km), Jupiter at 500 million miles (778 million km), and Uranus (the 'next planet out') at over 1800 million miles (2.9 billion km).
