If you put Saturn in water it would float


Is there a cooler object in the sky than Saturn? Maybe Jupiter, but I like Saturn a little better. If you know what you are looking for, you can see the rings of Saturn even with a pair of binoculars. Personally, I love getting out the telescope and showing Saturn to people. Their expressions when they see it show their amazement. Most people don’t realize that you can ACTUALLY see the rings.

The Density of Saturn

The density of Saturn is so low that if you were to put it in a giant glass of water it would float. The actual density of Saturn is 0.687 g/cm3 while the density of water is 0.998 g/cm3. At the equator Saturn has a radius of 60,268 ± 4 km – which means you would need an extremely large glass of water to test this out.
