Saturn s name origin meaning

Saturn's name origin/meaning

  • Saturn was named after the roman god of agriculture.

  • Saturn means Saturday.


Discovery

Discovery

  • Who : Galileo Galilei

  • When : 1610

  • How: By telescope


Distances

Distances

  • In the 6th order away from the sun.

  • 1,433,000,000 km away from the sun.

  • 1,300,000,000  km away from the earth.

Planet measurements

Planet Measurements

  • Mass : 568,319,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

  • Volume : 827,129,915,150,897 km3

  • Density : 0.687 g/cm3

  • Would Saturn float of sink in water. Explain.

    - Saturn would float for its density is lower then waters density.

  • Gravity : 1.08 times the gravity on earth.

    Ex: 100 lb on earth, 108 lb on Saturn.


Orbit and rotation

Orbit and Rotation

  • Saturn takes 29 earth year to orbit the sun.

  • 10 hr and 37 minutes for Saturn to completely rotate on its axis.


Atmosphere

Atmosphere

  • Saturn is approximately 94% of hydrogen and 6% of helium.

  • Methane ,ammonia, nitrogen and oxygen have been found in smaller traces.


Temperature

Temperature

  • Temperature range on Saturn is -288 F.

  • Temperature on earth is hotter by a long shot.

  • Florida is the hottest place know to man.


Composition appearences

Composition/Appearences

  • Gas Giant .

    - Surface is just a layer of gas.

  • Internal composition is the core is 10 to 20 times massive as the earth.

  • Saturn looks like a spherical gas planet with a massive rocky ring around it.


Weather

Weather

  • Saturn weather is very windy for its winds can reach up to 180 km mph .

  • 3 regions where “weather” occurs .

  • Contains ammonia clouds, ammonium hydro sulphine clouds, and water clouds.


R i n g s

Rings

  • Discovered in 1610 by a telescope by Galileo Galilei.

  • Eight rings around Saturn you can see by telescope.

  • People believe the rings are made of comets, asteroids, or shattered moons the broke up before they reached the planet.

  • The color of Saturn rings are shimmering pinks, properties of gray and a hint of brown.


Moons

Moons

  • 53 natural satellites

  • Titan-(1655)

  • Lapetus, Rhea, Dione, Tethys –(1671-1654)

  • Hyperion – (1848)

  • Janus –(1966)

Human travels

Human travels

  • If someone traveled to Saturn they would have no place to land for Saturn is just a gas planet.

  • He would sink to hotter and denser gases in Saturn till he gets crushed by the pressure.


Special slide

Special Slide

  • Each ring of Saturn rotates at a different speed.

  • Titan (Saturn moon) is so large it affects near things around it.

  • Moons can go thought the gaps between Saturn rings.

  • Scientist believe that titan can support life.
