Saturn {{ currentPage ? currentPage.title : "" }}

Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun. It was thought to be the furthest of the planets until the telescope was invented.

Second only in size to Jupiter, Saturn is made mainly of the light gases hydrogen and helium. 764 Earths would fit inside Saturn, but the gas giant weighs only 95 times as much as our rocky world. If you could put all of the planets in a pool of water, Saturn is the only one that would float. Despite its size, Saturn spins once in a little more than 10 hours.

Its spin is so rapid that it bulges outwards at the equator, making it look what?
