Science In Saturn

By: Maddie J. and Raed.

Come to Saturn, its out of this world!!!

Sun and Saturn

In Saturn, the temperature difference between the poles and its equator is very small, at its cold temperatures( averaging -175 degrees Celsius). This is because of how far away Saturn is away from the sun. Even though this planet is always moving, its average distance is about 886 million miles. Its furthest distance is 934 million miles away, and its closest distance away is 839 million miles from the sun.

Earth and Saturn

Again, since Earth and Saturn are always moving, the distance will vary, but when the two are farthest apart, they are just over a billion miles, which is 11 times between the Earth and the sun. Then, when they are at their closest distance, they are approximately 746 million miles apart, which is 8 times as much distance between the Earth and the sun.

Saturns Scenes

Saturn is the second largest planet, after Jupiter, big enough to hold 760 earths, but it also has the least amount of density. Believe it or not, if there was a giant bathtub full of water, this massive planet would be able to float on it, which means it is also the only planet that is less dense than water. There are many characteristics of Saturn, but the basics are that it is a gas planet, and it is mostly made up of hydrogen and helium. Also, it is useful to know that has the most extraordinary rings out of all the gas giants, because, the largest one spans up to 200 times the diameter of the planet!

Saturns Rings

Hello, we are Saturns rings, and today we will be talking about the special weather conditions up here. On Saturn, there are many stormy weather conditions, but we just found out that it was us, the rings of Saturn, that are causing what make it rain. What happens, is the erosion from the paricles of us are making rain water that is falling all over Saturn, so if you come and visit us, be prepared to bring our rainproof spacesuit, If you want to find out more, visit the website in the link.

The spacesuits

#1 Glass covered plastic helmet. Glass for clear view and Plastic for strength.
#2 aluminum for insulation, kevlar for strength, Thick platic with rubber latex-free for outer covering. Rubber and plastic protect against mild bumps and holes in suit.
#3 aluminum for insulation, kevlar for strength, Thick platic with rubber latex-free for outer covering. Rubber and plastic protect against mild bumps and holes in suit.
#4 mini thrusters for the extra gravitonal force on saturn.
#5 Air Tight belt sealed with Latex-free rubber and titanium air-tight zip For getting out of the suit.
#6 oxygen for breathing and fire A/C, helium to float and propane for propulsion.
