SATURN

If you were to put Saturn in water, it would float.
Saturn's rings are 500,000 miles in circumference but only about a foot thick.
The temperature difference between the poles and the equator is very small on Saturn.
The atmosphere of Saturn comprises mostly of Hydrogen and Helium.
Saturn's rings are made up of billions of pieces of rocks and dust.
Saturn has the lowest density of all the planets in the solar system. It is so light that it could actually float on water if there was an ocean big enough to hold it.
Saturn has over 30 known Satellites, but many of them are small and faint.
Saturn has no solid surface. It is a giant ball of gas, but it does have a solid inner core.
Saturn has 62 moons. Titan is the largest and it is the only Saturn moon with an atmosphere. Titan is also larger than the planet Mercury.
It takes about 29.46 Earth years for Saturn to orbit around our sun.
