This planet was discovered by Galileo and it is also known as the ring planet. Haven’t you guessed? Yes, it is Saturn!
Though Saturn may be best known for its rings, there are other interesting things about the planet and its surrounding moons. Saturn may be the second largest planet in the solar system, but it holds the record for least dense. Water has a density of 1.0 grams per centimeter cubed. Saturn has a density of 0.69 grams per centimeter cubed. This means that if you could somehow obtain a huge chunk of the ringed planet, and bring it back to Earth, it would float in your swimming pool!
