    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Narrator: It is the showstopper of our solar system, basking in its own glow it seduces all admirers. However, it is a beauty with a mean streak. It's a massive, frigid ball of gas, surrounded by icy rings hurtling at 40,000 miles an hour. It is a planet of violent weather with a polar storm bigger than the United States of America. But its moons are even more exciting. Another has an atmosphere with oceans and mountains. Could life exist on one of these moons?

      • Robert Roy Britt: Saturn is a wild, ever changing place, but unlike on Earth where things change on a daily or even hourly basis, the storms Saturn can last for days and weeks and months and things change on a large scale very slowly over time.

      • Narrator: Incredibly, winds blow at 1,000 miles per hour.

      • Neil deGrasse Tyson: What's interesting now that we're going to this planet, is that we're learning that in some ways the moons are where the action is.
