The big nut in the middle of the wheel holds the axel in the hub and pushes the two bearing halfs together. Make sure that nut is tightened to specs and then some. I don't like over torquing things, but I did it to my 1995 SL2 and was surprised that the nut turned another half turn with only a little more torque. Then backed off and tightened to specs. I have read about this elsewhere, but like I said, I don't like it much. Spec calls for 145 foot-pounds.

How do you replace front wheel bearings on a 2000 Mercury Cougar?

Replacing the front wheel bearings is not too dificult of a task on a 2000 merc. cougar. You must remove the whole nuckle, then take the nuckle and new bearings to a shop (one that does this kind of thing) and have the old bearings cut out, and the new ones pressed in (with a hydraulic press, don't try it your self, you will just damage your parts, hurt your self, and cost yourself lots of money). A typical shop will charge $40-$75 to press the new bearings in. Now, for a much much better solution, I found a place on line (awesome place to do business with!!!) based out of sherman Texas (I'm near Chicago). They have the best prices and support too, support with helping you find the parts via diagrams and such. Call this company, order the whole nuckle with bearings already pressed in from factory. It will cost you a little bit more, but it is easier to work with, no down time while waiting for the shop to press bearings (usually 1-2 business days). Also, even though it may be a little more expensive for the part, It will be much better than replaceing your bearings then having to replace them again in 6 months becasue someone at the shop accidently put a tiny tiny divvet in the new bearings. (this happend to me, I replaced my front bearings in January, then replaced them again in August becasue the shop **** up) ,

How much would it be to get a spaceship on Saturn?

Since Saturn is a gas planet, you wouldn't ever "get a spaceship on Saturn" - either near it or in it. It would be a lot of effort and money - Saturn is the 6th planet, Mars the 3rd, so it'll be quite a bit farther to reach it. Mars is 193 million miles from the Sun, Saturn is 888 million miles from the Sun; 695 Million more miles or 6.5 times farther. Since it is estimated a one way trip to Mars will take 3 months, a trip to Saturn will take 19.5 months or over a year and a half to get there. Return trips make it 6 months for Mars, 3.25 years for Saturn.

Saturn doesn't really have months like we do on Earth. Our month is based on the amount of time it takes the moon to orbit. Saturn has over 60 moons, so they don't really have any one reference to base a month on.
