Interesting facts about SaturnSaturn Facts for Kids

Perhaps the most beautiful planet in our solar system (other than earth of course) due to its spectacular ring system, Saturn is a gas giant that features many extreme physical features and atmospheric conditions.

 


  • Saturn is the second largest planet in our solar system and is another gas giant.
  • Saturn has a small rocky core covered with liquid gas.

  • It is surrounded by a system of rings that stretch out into space for thousands of kilometres.

  • The rings are made up of millions of ice crystals, some as big as houses and others as small as specks of dust.

  • Saturn is very light as it is made up of more hydrogen than helium so it is less dense. If we could fit Saturn into a bathtub it would float (but that would have to be one big bathtub!)

  • Like Jupiter, Saturn has many moons which surround it.

  • Saturn is not a peaceful planet.  Storm winds race around the atmosphere at 800kmp/h.

  • Saturn has a very strong magnetic field which traps energy particles resulting in high levels of radiation.
