Articles about Saturn
Saturn is the sixth farthest planet from the sun distinguished from the others by the rings that surround it. The planet’s average radius is about 9.5 times as much as the Earth but since it is composed of gas, its density is just one-eighth of the Earth’s, giving it the name “gas giant”. The planet has been named after the Roman god of wealth and agriculture. NASA claims that Saturn isn’t the only planet to have rings but no other planets’ are as spectacular. A year on Saturn is equal to 29 Earth years because of the former’s much larger orbital path around the sun. Saturn is known to have 53 confirmed moons and 29 are provisional. Saturn is also the farthest planet that can be seen from Earth with the naked eye. Saturn itself isn’t likely to harbor forms of life but its many moons could have internal oceans with signs of life. The rings are thought to be pieces of comets, asteroids, and shattered moons that broke up before they reached the planet. The rings are made up of billions of chunks of ice and rock, coated with dust.
