The atmosphere is composed of mainly hydrogen and helium with trace amounts of methane, water, ammonia, and hydrogen sulfide
There is no real surface on the planet
Saturn is the least dense of all the planets
It has lots of rings encircling the planet
there are four sections to the ring system
they are thought to have formed recently (several thousand years ago)
Saturn is about 130 degrees Celsius
Saturn is a pale yellow with hints of orange I don't think humans could live on Saturn because it is really hot. It is about 130 degrees Celsius, which would be way too hot for humans to live there. Also, there isn't a real surface on the planet. So, how could we ever build on Saturn if there is no surface? Saturn is one of the very few planets that you can see with the naked eye. So, it is believed that the Greeks saw the planet and named it after their god of agriculture, Kronos. It is thought that since the planet is yellow, it relates to wheat. Thanks for watching!
