Can humans live on Saturn?
Saturn and its rings are the jewel of the solar system, but the gas giant's lack of a surface means humans won't likely find a foothold there. Saturn's moons Titan and Enceladus, however, might be better choices. Without a solid surface, Saturn isn't likely a place we could ever live.
Is Saturn hot or cold?
Saturn: Due to its distance from the Sun, Saturn is a rather cold gas giant planet, with an average temperature of -178 °Celsius. But because of Saturn's tilt, the southern and northern hemispheres are heated differently, causing seasonal temperature variation.
Can you land on Saturn?
For a spacecraft to land on the rings, they would have to present a good solid surface, just as much of Earth, the moon, and Mars do. If you look at a picture of Saturn, you might think the ring is a big disk, so you could land anywhere on it. And there definitely would be plenty of room for landing.
What planet is green?
Uranus is blue-green in color, as a result of the methane in its mostly hydrogen-helium atmosphere. The planet is often dubbed an ice giant, since at least 80% of its mass is a fluid mix of water, methane and ammonia ice.
Is there water on Saturn?
Saturn has more than 60 moons, all mostly made of water ice. Saturn's moon Enceladus has a water-ice crust over a saltwater ocean. The ocean water on Enceladus sprays into space through cracks in the icy crust.
