1. Sixth planet from the Sun and second largest in the system. The outermost planet known in classical times. 764 times Earth's volume, 94 times its mass. Orbits once in nearly 30 Earth years at a distance of roughly 925 million miles. Gravity at cloud decks averages about 1.16 times that on Earth. The least dense planet in the system, overall density roughly .687 times that of water. Diameter 74,898 miles through the equator, give or take five miles; 67,560 miles through the poles, give or take 13 miles. Average temperature at visible cloud decks is about 185 degrees Centigrade below zero. Atmosphere is mostly hydrogen with some helium and traces of other elements, similar but not identical to that of Jupiter. Cloud patterns appear more subdued than on Jupiter, due at least in part to an upper layer of haze. Best known for its bright and extensive ring system, consisting of countless trillions of blocks of (mainly) water ice. Most of the ring system is within a diameter of 225,000 miles or so, but is only a few hundred feet thick; scaled down to the size of a city, the rings would be as thick as a sheet of newsprint. Saturn has a retinue of major satellites comparable to those around Jupiter; only one of them, Titan, is particularly large. The latter is an intriguing body recently imaged by the Cassini Probe and visited by the Huygens Lander, and the only moon in the solar system with an appreciable atmosphere.
2. Roman god of time and farming, equivalent to the Greek Kronos. Best known for his feeling of unease at the possibility that his sons would outdo him, which he assuaged in the most efficient way possible; by eating them. One of them, however, escaped. His name was Jupiter, and the rest, as they say, is mythology.
3. The family of rockets used in the Apollo mission that (Uncle Sam, take a bow) landed humans on the Moon.
Saturn is often referred to as the Lord of the Rings.

Surrounded by many dazzling rings, Saturn is the most beautiful planet in the Solar System. It is the second largest planet, sixth from the Sun and the second fastest rotating planet. Its year is roughly 29 1/2 Earth years long. Also, Saturn has the largest moon system out of any planet, at least 20.
I can See Saturn throough my telescope! It's so beautiful.
Decent cars that get incredible gas mileage and last over 250,000 miles when taken care of. Any Saturn up to 2002 equipped with the 124hp DOHC engine is faster than most GM3800 equipped cars because of a stellar power/weight ratio (look it up on YouTube if you don't believe it). The SOHC engine from 1991-1994 gets 37 highway @85hp, and the 1995-2002 SOHC gets 40 highway @100hp. The power on these engines is measured at the end of the transmission with all accesories installed and operating, and even the first generation 85hp single cam has enough torque to outrun the 107hp Honda D15 engine.
People often bag on Saturns because they aren't fast, or because they burn more oil than the average car. Some also talk about reliability issues, but these are usually head gaskets that blow on the lemons.
By the way, anything after 2002 is a rebaged Opel mixed with GM (and sometimes Honda) parts, and therefore not a true Saturn.
DSM Owner: "HAHAHAHA OMG!!! You bought a Saturn?! Those things are so slow and total crap!"
Saturn Owner: "Well let's race then"
*****1 mile later*****
DSM Owner: "How did you beat me with only 124hp?"
Saturn Owner: "Power/weight ratio, and torque wins the race. By the way, looks like you need a rebuild!"
DSM Owner: "I suppose it's been 20 miles since something broke, hasn't it?"
1. A great gaming console by Sega. Released just before the Playstation and Nintendo 64, it started out with mainly 2D games but proved to be well suited for 3D gaming.
2. The sixth planet from the Sun in Earth's solar system. Has an amazing set of rings that are thousands of miles wide.
3. A car brand. Sometimes disparagingly known as the "Redneck's Honda"
4. One of the main characters in the manga/anime Sailor Moon. Unlike most characters she is quiet and submissive.
1. -Sega Saturn is the greatest console ever!
-Pfft. Maybe if you like playing nonstop fighting games and seeing everything rendered in squares.
2. -Dude look out the window in the direction of the library, you can see Saturn in the sky!
3. -Why don't you own a Saturn?
-Well, why don't you own a pony?
4. -Man I just got the urge to watch me some Sailor Moon right now. Saturn is my favorite character.
-I'll get the nachos!
Fifth movement in Holst's "The Planets" entitled "Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age." This, in fact, was Holst's favorite movement. The longest movement in the suite, lasting about 9 1/2 minutes.
The best movement of "The Planets" is Saturn.
the cutest kitty alive <3
Look at Saturn ! She's so cute.
