Transcript of #6 Saturn

Saturn *Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun *Saturn is the second largest planet in the Solar System Saturn has 62 moons. Titan is the largest moon on Saturn,which is larger than the planet Mercury.24 of Saturn's moons are regular satellites; they have prograde orbits not greatly inclined to Saturn's equatorial planeThe remaining 38, all small except one, are irregular satellites, whose orbits are much farther from Saturn, have high inclinations, and are mixed between prograde and retrograde. You wouldn't be able to live on Saturn. It has wind speeds around 1100mph Atmosphere: Saturn is made up of Hydrogen and Helium The closer you got to the center, The higher the atmospheric pressure is. it would crush you long before you got even close to any central region.

The rings of Saturn are made up of objects ranging in size from microscopic to hundreds of meters, each by its own orbit about the planet.Saturn's rings are among the most recognizable features in the solar system.Scientists still aren't sure exactly how old the rings are.The rings spread over hundreds of thousands of kilometers, yet they are extremely thin about 30 feet thick. Saturn's atmosphere also includes ammonia ice near the top of the cloud Mass- 5.8648 x 10^26
Average surface temperature (K)- 97
Orbital period (Eath days)- 10759.22
Equatorial radius-60,268
Orbital period (earth days)-10,759.22
Orbital eccentricity- 0.0565
1 day on Saturn is 10 hours & 14 minutes.

NASA's Cassini orbiter is on an extended mission to explore Saturn and its rings, its magnetosphere and its moons. Cassini also delivered Europe's Huygens probe to its historic landing on Titan in 2005.

Accomplishments: After completing the first in-depth, up-close study of Saturn and its realm from orbit, Cassini is on an extended mission to follow up on the many discoveries .Cassini's observations of Saturn's largest moon, Titan, have given scientists a glimpse of what our home planet might have been like before life evolved on Earth.

The Europeans are in the final stages of choosing between a mission to explore Jupiter or Tandem, which would be a mission that enters the Saturn system. It would explore Titan and Enceladus while taking some detailed readings of Saturn itself.
