This is what I knew about Saturn before this whole journey:
It is a planet.
It is bigger than most things in Earth, including, quite possibly, the Earth itself.
It is very very far away. Even if I were the Silver Surfer, it’d be a long ride.
It has rings.
Regardless of this fact, it remains unmarried. (Don’t know if prop 8 has celestial jurisdiction)
Now for the basic FACTS:

Rotation period: 10 h 13 m 59 s
Mean orbital velocity: 9.6 km/s
