What would you have to do to live on Saturn?
At a first glance, Saturn should have a clement environment to live in. The atmosphere above a floating colony would provide sufficient protection against cosmic rays and other sources of radiation. 1g gravity and sea-level pressure should mean living conditions are no worse than on Arctic research stations.
How does Saturn move?
Saturn rotates about once every 10.5 hours. The planet’s high-speed spin causes Saturn to bulge at its equator and flatten at its poles. The planet is around 75,000 miles (120,000 kilometers) across at its equator, and 68,000 miles (109,000 km) from pole to pole.
How does Saturn move around the Sun?
Saturn revolves or orbits around the Sun once every 29.4 Earth years, or once every 10,755.7 Earth days. Saturn travels at an average speed of 21,637 miles per hour or 34,821 kilometers per hour in its orbit around the Sun.
Is there a way to live on Saturn?
James Pitt, Harvard HEB graduate. As mentioned below, you couldn’t live on Saturn, but you could potentially live in Saturn. There’s a proposal to colonize Venus using balloons floating in the atmosphere, at the height where the atmospheric pressure is the same as on Earth’s surface.
How can humans live on Saturn’s moon Titan?
How Humans Could Live on Saturn’s Moon Titan (Infographic) Titan is probably the least inhospitable place in the outer solar system, but remember to bring oxygen and warm clothing.
How long does it take Saturn to spin around the Sun?
One day on Saturn takes only 10.7 hours (the time it takes for Saturn to rotate or spin around once), and Saturn makes a complete orbit around the Sun (a year in Saturnian time) in about 29.4 Earth years (10,756 Earth days). Its axis is tilted by 26.73 degrees with respect to its orbit around the Sun, which is similar to Earth’s 23.5-degree tilt.
When did Saturn join the rest of the Solar System?
Much farther out, there is the very faint Phoebe ring in the orbit of Saturn’s moon Phoebe. Saturn took shape when the rest of the solar system formed about 4.5 billion years ago when gravity pulled swirling gas and dust in to become this gas giant.
