As you go out further from the sun the planets take longer to travel around the sun History Saturn is Jupiter’s father Composition 2nd largest planet Much less dense than Jupiter Inner layer of Metallic Hydrogen Because there’s tremendous pressure, the tremendous gravity squeezes the planet so much (we have no metallic hydrogen on earth) core of Saturn is the size of the Earth The core of Saturn is much smaller than the core of Jupiter, it’s density is lower than one, if you put Saturn in a tub of water it would float, why is it less dense because it has a very small core Magnetosphere 20x stronger than earths so strong because its So huge Outermost planet to see with a naked eye Tilt 27 degrees (more than earth) (meaning that something large hit it) Spins extremely fast E ff ects magnetosphere Rotation & Core fast, 10.5 hours, gives it belts and bands Going to give the planet a tremendous magnetosphere Gives it an oblate shape
