Life forms

There is no life on Saturn because of the climate. No life form can withstand the extreme cold temperatures or the storms. Another reason is because of the atmosphere,

there is absolutely no oxygen. Even if there was oxygen there would be no solid land for life to live on. Another reason life cannot exist on Saturn is because of the lack of sunlight.

Saturn discovered

Saturn was fully discovered 1655 by Christiaan Huygens. Huygens discovered that Saturn had rings around it. Actually Galileo Galilei discovered Saturn before Huygens

but he thought that the rings were handles. Saturn has never been landed on by humans because there is no solid land to land a space shuttle on.
