Welcome to Saturn

Description

You have reached the second gas giant in our solar system; you might be familiar with Saturn as the planet with the rings around it. These rings are made up of billions of small particles, dust, rock and ice, which have been drawn into Saturn’s orbit. It’s not the only planet with rings, but it definitely has the most extensive rings of all the planets.

Much like Jupiter, Saturn has many, many moons, including one called Titan. Titan is the only moon in the solar system known to have clouds and a thick atmosphere, just like a planet. However, it also rains methane – so you probably wouldn’t like to live there…

Distance: Saturn is 1.434 billion km away from the sun!
