Which planet’s known as the “Jewel of the Solar System”? Well, Saturn.
This giant planet is made almost entirely of liquid and gas. It’s huge, but its density’s so low, you could throw it in a giant bathtub and it would float!
Saturn’s very different from earth, obviously. Our planet is solid, and so are Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Now this is a puzzle to secular astronomers. If our solar system formed from a spinning cloud of dust and gas, why do we have both kinds of planets? Other solar systems only have one or the other.
Our solar system has such beautiful diversity because it didn’t evolve—it was created.
