  • Who : Galileo Galilei
  • When : 1610
  • How: By telescope
distances
Distances
  • In the 6th order away from the sun.

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)

Titan

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.
