What makes Saturn different from any other planet?


Question asked by: knowitall

Saturn is different for many reasons.

The most obvious is that it occupies a different spatial location relative to the sun than the other planets, therefore it receives different amounts of heat and light from the sun.

It also has a varied network of moons many of which display properties that are not seen elsewhere in the solar system - this also makes it unique.

What it is best known for is its unique ring system that is much more pronounced than for any other planet; made up probably of crushed or exploded material that has hit the main planet and ejected out or rubble from moons or other objects that have been affected adversely by the gravity of this large planetary body.
