In 1997, the spacecraft Cassini launched. Now, over 20 years later, the mission ended with a planned crash into Saturn. This mission showed us that Saturn is young!

Cassini gathered data about Saturn’s core and gravitational forces. Scientists wanted to try to explain how Saturn can have such a strong magnetic field. You see, magnetic fields lose energy over time, and Saturn is thought to be billions of years old. It should have a weak magnetic field. Evolutionists thought maybe something called a “dynamo” kept it working. But Cassini showed that won’t work.

Saturn’s magnetic field is strong because the planet’s young, created by God a few thousand years ago.
