What about SATURN?

This glorious beakens name is Saturn. Saturn has 18 moons and we'll be naming them shortly. Any who, this planet is 6th from the Sun. It's distance from the Sun is a whopping 1,429,400,000 km. If I my self decided to take a small vacation to this planet my total weight if i weighed 110 lbs. would turn out to be 117 lbs on Saturn. My next birthday would be Saturday, June 21, 2025, not my birthday actualy far from it. Oh, and my age would be 11330. Hows that for old.
Saturn's biggest moon is Titan.It's the second largest moon in the solar system.

Saturn was named after the Roman god of agriculture Cronus. Saturn was found by Galileo Galilei in 1610.

In 1973 NASA launched a probe to study Saturn and Jupiter. This probe was called the Pioneer-Saturn. Pioneer-Saturn sped by Jupiter in 1974 and was within 13,000 miles of Saturn on September 1, 1979. This led to the discoveries of the two outer rings of Saturn.
In 1977 two space probes called Voyager1 and Voyager 2 went to study Saturn. They confirmed the existence of seventh ring and that the rings are made of ringlets.In 1997 the Cassini probe studied the rings and satellites it orbited Saturn in 2004.

Saturn has the most complex system of rings in the solar system. Saturn's rings are made of ice chunks and rock particlesthat range in size from the size of a fingernail to the size of a car.They were first observed by Galileo in the 17th century.

Saturn is the second largest planet.It has a mass of 5.69 x 10^26km and its diameter is 74898 miles.Saturn is about 9.4 times the diameter of the Earth. 764 Earths could fit inside a hollowed-out Saturn. ​​ Saturn is the only planet in our Solar System that is less dense than water. Saturn would float if there were a body of water large enough.The average temperature on Saturn (at the cloud tops) is 88 K (-185° C; -290° F). Saturn is the most flattened planet in our Solar System. Saturn's flattened shape is probably caused by its fast rotation and its gaseous composition.

Saturn's atmosphere is 75% hydrogen,25%helium,and traces of water,methane,ammonia,and rock .

Each day on Saturn takes 10.2 Earth hours. A year on Saturn takes 29.46 Earth years; it takes 29.46 Earth years for Saturn to orbit the sun once.
