THE RINGS OF SATURN !

Saturn’s rings are made of millions of chunks of ice and rock.

Saturn is not the only planet with rings but they are the easiest to see.

The rings are about 250,000 km in diameter but are less than 1 km thick.

Saturn’s three brightest rings don’t have names but they have the first three letters of the alphabet, A, B and C.

Two rings (A and B) and one faint ring (C) can be seen from the Earth. The gap between the A and B rings is known as the Cassini division.

Mythical news

One extraordinary astronaut named Monty Flight from Liverpool decided last year that he would fly to Saturn in an XZ power rocket sponsored by the one and only Domino Pizza.

He has spent 3 years building this mega energy charged rocket with fire boosters.

Monty is going into space because he needs the money to feed his family and his dog Beano.

The scientists will gain a lot from the mission to Saturn and Monty will become the first man from Liverpool to go into space.

Monty will become famous to the whole magnificent world.

Monty will be setting off in four days time . He will be launching his rocket from outside the museum of National History in Liverpool at 5.30 on Friday
