Outer and Inner Planets

Appearance and Atmosphere

Inside the Planet

- Pale, yellow color-Gas planet (75% hydrogen, 25% helium)-Outer planet-6th planet from the sun -Gaseous Atmosphere-Pale yellow = atmosphere-Atmosphere encircles planet-No solid surface

Core layers from inside to outside-rocky core-liquid metallic hydrogen layer-molecular hydrogen layer-small & dense-21,000 degrees Farenheit

Saturn

-Cronus = God of Time and Ages-Son of Gaia and Uranus-Latin = Saturn

Astroid belt seperates inner and outer planets

Cronus/Kronos

2nd Largest Planet

100 lbs on Earth?You'd be 106.4 lbs on Saturn!The size of the planet causes the difference.

-Continious band of a million particles-Made of water ice, dust, & rock-Remains of an old moon-Many kinds

Saturn's Rings

-2nd largest moon in solar system-Atmosphere similar to Earth

Titan

Missions-Cassini-Hygens mission put shuttle in orbit around planet-Landed probe on Titan-1997-2005

Saturn is an ideal planet to buy because it is very spaceous, and the night is a very beautiful sight to see with the many moons, and the color of the atmosphere is eye appealing because of the different colored bands of gas encircling the planet.

1 day = 10.33 hrs1 year = 29.7 Earth years

Moons-60 + moons-Pan, Atlas, Prometheus, Janus, Calypso, and more!

MANY RAINSTORMS, SNOWSTORMS, AND WINDSTORMS

14 years old on Earth?You'd only be 1/2 a year old on Saturn!

Fast Facts-0.7 g less dense than water-One of the brightest planets-No surface = no life-Radiates 2.5x more energy into space than it recieves from Sun-Also known as Earth Star-60 moons-Least dense planet

886,528,266 miles from the Sun!The journey would take 1.49 hours!

-300 degrees F average
