Without proper protection, no. It's possible a floating colony could be made, providing breathable air and protection from the elements, but a human by him or herself could not survive on Saturn.

Is there life Saturn?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is not known if there is any life on Saturn. The odds are that if there were it would be different from life here on Earth. Saturn's environment features include strong gravity, high pressure, strong winds, and cold temperatures of -180oC to +40oC degrees.

On the plus side there are available reactive materials in the cloud decks - ammonia, ammonia hydrosulfide, and water. There is also ample energy in the environment from lightning, ultraviolet light, and charged particles.

Science Fiction writers have postulated critters that could live in this type of environment which might fly in the clouds with vast gas bags of helium or hydrogen to keep them aloft, but no evidence of their preence has been found.

When does the Age of Aquarius start?

User Avatar

Asked by Michael Kreiger

The New Age of Aquarius has already started, some years ago.
There are theories that it will start though, in 2012 and then the same theorist says it will "all be over in a flash of light". That seems untrue and quite fearful, no matter who wrote it.
In fact, there are many name for this Age:
1. The New Age.
2. The Age of Aquarius.
3. The Age of Enlightenment.
4. The Age of Forgiveness.
5. The Golden Age.
6. The 17th Golden Age (a problem with that).
7. The Celestial Age.

If a person quests for more truthful Knowledge and Enlightenment, they are usually on the right track.

What is bigger Earth or Saturn?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Basic Answer:

Saturn is much larger than Earth, as are all the gas giant planets.

How large depends on whether you are comparing the apparent size or diameter, the mass or the volume.

1. Linear Size: The width or radius of Saturn is 9 times that of Earth.

2 Volume: You could fit 792 Earth's inside of Saturn.

3. Mass: Saturn has 95 times more mass than Earth.

More information below.

Data obtained from NASA. See related links.

Saturn and Earth Sizes:

Mass of Earth is 5.97 x 10^24 kg.

Mass of Saturn is 568 x 10^24 kg.

Diameter of Earth is 12,756 kilometers.

Diameter of Saturn is 120,536 kilometers.

For all Planets:

Mass ratio of Saturn to Earth (568 /5.97) = 95.142

Mass ratio of Uranus to Earth (86.8/5.97) = 14.539

Mass ratio of Neptune to Earth (102 /5.97) = 17.085

Mass ratio of Pluto to Earth (.0125/5.97)= .002

What formula is used to figure the time it takes a radio signal to travel from Mars to Earth?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Radio waves, like all other waveforms in the electromagnetic spectrum travel at what is known as the speed of light. i.e. 3x10 to the power 8 metres per second (300,000,000)

but the distance between the earth and mars varies enormously depending on their relative positions in their orbits around the sun. Anything from approx 35 million miles at it's nearest to about 340 million miles or thereabouts at it's furthest.

So roughly 3 minutes minimum to about 30 minutes maximum.

First off you need to make sure your timing is set right,it could have jumped timing.Second check if your getting spark to your spark plugs it needs to be a bright white or blue spark. If its orange,try replacingyour coil or distributor cap and rotor cap. And last but not least make sure your getting fuel to your carborator.

Why do you think wind speeds on the gas giant planets are so much greater than the wind speeds on earth?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Probably the biggest reason is that there is no land to slow down the wind. Also, wind is caused by differences in air pressure, which are caused by uneven heating and cooling. The gas giants have not only the heat from the sun but also their own internal heat. Jupiter is so massive that it generates more heat than it receives from the sun.

What is the terrain like in Paris?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The underlying terrain in Paris is that of a river basin; a saucer with a few lumps in it. Originally, the lower ground, especially North of the river, was essentially marshy (one quarter is still called 'le Marais'). The town grew up between the islands (where the river crossing was the reason for the place's existence) and the most prominent of the hills to the South.

Is the temperaure on Saturn suitable for life?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Temperatures on Saturn would not sustain life. Saturn is too far from the Sun and therefore too cold to allow anything to live there.
