One astrophysicist is suggesting we remove Saturn's status as a gas giant, saying the planet tried but didn't quite make the cut.
Saturn enters retrograde on June 17, shifting from its usual eastward movement to travel westwards through the constellations until early November.
Reference Saturn has the most moons of any other planet in the solar system. Here we explore some of the 145 moons that orbit the ringed planet.
For the first time, phosphorus — the rarest of six elements upon which life as we know it depends — has been found in a tiny ocean-bearing moon in our solar system.
The James Webb Space Telescope has found a 6,000 mile-long plume of water squirting into space from Saturn's tiny moon Enceladus, creating a massive watery cloud in the planet's orbit.
Reference Enceladus is one of Saturn's many moons. The tiny icy world has the potential to harbor life and is one of the most intriguing destinations in the solar system.
Saturn's rings are surprisingly youthful and much younger than the gas giant planet itself, new research has revealed.
Finding alien life just took a twist. A snake-shaped robot from NASA aims to climb the crumpled terrain of icy moons like Enceladus to search out microbes.
Saturn is once again the solar system's "moon king," snatching the crown back from Jupiter after the discovery of 62 new moons. Saturn now has a whopping 145 known satellites.
