About Saturn’s Moons
  • 18 known moons
  • 2 more unconfirmed
  • The largest moon is Titan
titan
Titan
  • 2nd largest moon in solar system
  • It’s density is 2 g/cm3
  • It’s made up of about half rock and half frozen water.
  • The atmospheres pressure is 1.5 times Earth’s
  • 90 to 99% of the gas is Nitrogen. The rest is methane and very small amounts of hydrogen cyanide and acetylene.
  • -180°:turns methane and other gases to liquid
  • Its orange because of that.
mimas
Mimas
  • Nicknamed the “The Death Star”
  • Creator is named Herschel
  • It’s so big that it’s gravity pulls material to keep it in a sphere
  • Named after a Titan the Hercules killed
enceladus
Enceladus

Rhea
  • 2nd largest moon of Saturn
  • 1/3 of the moon’s mass is rock. The rock is the core. The other 2/3 of the moon is ice.
  • Many creators cover the planet.
hyperion
Hyperion
  • The largest non-ball shaped object in the solar system
  • Being that it isn’t round, scientist think that it broke off of a larger moon.
  • Named after the son of Earth and Uranus
iapetus
Iapetus
  • Iapetus’ structure is primarily an ice ball.
  • Unlike most of the moons that orbit around the equator of Saturn, Iapetus orbits from top to bottom.
  • Named after the son of Uranus, that is said to be an ancestor to humans.
phoebe
Phoebe
  • Phoebe is 4 times farther than Iapetus to Saturn
  • It’s darker tan a lot of Saturn’s moons
  • It orbits from top to bottom, and not around the equator
  • Scientists think that Phoebe is probably a comet or asteroid captured by Saturn’s Gravity.
