These Webpages are no longer maintained. We are keeping the pages here to preserve some of the early years of ProjectDragonfly, to honor the students who created the interactives in the early days of the Web, and because many of the activities are fun and people are still using them. For current Project Dragonfly work, go to:www.ProjectDragonfly.org

Thanks!

    Saturn's bands are the most interesting aspects of this planet. They can be found near the equator of the planet, and are many different sizes. You could play a fun game of baseball on this planet, as long as you watched out for the storms that tend to pop up. Saturn also has a signifigant magnetic field. Unlike the other planets, when viewed from Earth, Saturn does not twinkle. Saturn is composed of materials which are lighter than water. This means that if the planet were placed in a huge lake, it would float!  Saturn's interior is similar to Jupiter's consisting of a rocky core, a liquid metallic hydrogen layer and a molecular hydrogen layer. Traces of various ices are also present.
