The Magic School Bus[]

Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun, and is where Ms. Frizzle's class fly past by in The Magic School Bus episode, Gets Lost in Space.

Saturn is also one of the solar system's planets that game players could choose to fly to and land on its moon, Mimas, in the PC game, The Magic School Bus Explores the Solar System.

After passing Jupiter, Ms. Frizzle's class approach Saturn. Janet tells the class it's Saturn since there's no other gas giant with such beautiful rings. Keesha presumes it must be cold on Saturn since it's very far away from the sun, but Tim reminds the others that Ms. Frizzle said "cold and dark". Janet says it could be very, very dark on Saturn, but Carlos disgustedly tells her they ain't stopping from what she said, since he knows she just wants to collect more stuff. Janet disgusted tells Carlos she's just trying to help and walks to the back seat. Arnold suggests that Janet could be right and Ms. Frizzle could be on Saturn. Wanda then takes the wheel and tells Arnold it's his job to keep her crazy cousin under control. Ms. Frizzle then contacts the class and tells them she and Liz couldn't wait to show them all the stars they could see from the outer planet they're on. Upon hearing the hit Ms. Frizzle gave them, Wanda realizes Ms. Frizzle is definitely not on Saturn, since she couldn't at all see the stars through all of Saturn's storms and clouds. So they then leave Saturn and fly to the next planet, Uranus.

The Magic School Bus Explores the Solar System[]

Saturn could be one of the planets of the solar system that the players could click on to fly to and land on its moon, Mimas. On Mimas, the player controls Tim on the rocks Saturn's rings are made of while searching for the Ms. Frizzle token, which will give the player a clue of which planet or moon she's on. Tim also does his report on Saturn.

Exosquad[]

The Outer Planets, the planets beyond the asteroid belt, were the dominion of the Pirate Clans. Jupiter and Saturn were not inhabited because of their gaseous structure, although some of their moons were. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were not inhabited because the Pirates lacked the technology to terraform them.

Saturn itself was uninhabitable due to the gas giant, but some of its moons did serve as temporary military bases and battlefields. Prior to the accidental discovery of Chaos, most of Jupiter and Saturn moons served as temporary bases for the Pirate Clan Fleets, since they were where they were originally exiled and later abandoned.

Sailor Moon[]

Saturn (土星; "Star of Earth") is the sixth planet from the Sun in this Solar System, and is best known for its collection of rings. The number of moons it has is uncertain (due to the large collection of matter in the rings), but its most famous moon is Titan, and the other moons are accordingly named after mythological Titans. It is grouped with Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune as a planet of the outer Solar System.

In the Sailor Moon series, Saturn was protected by Sailor Saturn, even though in the present she resided on Earth with the other Sailor Senshi of the system. During the time of the Silver Millennium, she was sealed on Saturn to prevent her awakening.

In the manga, Titan Castle orbited Saturn, and was the palace of Princess Saturn.

Mythology[]

Saturn was the god of agriculture and harvest, and his symbol was the sickle. He was the son of the sky god Caelus, also known as Uranus, and the Earth goddess Terra, and led a rebellion against his father with his mother's aid, making himself the king of the gods. Saturn was the father of some of the main gods of the Roman pantheon, such as Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto, Juno, Ceres, and Vesta.

He was identified with the Greek deity Cronus (Κρόνος), and often confused with Chronos (Χρόνος), the personification of time. The Greeks of the classical era read "Κρόνος" as "Chronos, "Robert Graves, The Greek Myths thus the mythologies of the three gods were commonly mixed.

Astrology[]

Saturn is associated with limitations of the sort that bring order and structure to the world, or a need to fulfill obligations. It can also symbolize ambition, fear, self-discipline, loneliness, and harsh trials that lead to personal growth. Saturn is associated with Saturday. Dante Alighieri associated Saturn with the art of astronomia.

Moons[]

Titan[]

Titan, a largest moon of Saturn and has a very dense atmosphere.

Enceladus[]

Enceladus, a moon of Saturn known to be one of the only three moons in the Solar System to be astrogeologically active along with Io and Triton. This was the site of the second battle of the Exofleet's hunt to eliminate the Pirate Clans threat just prior to the beginning of the Neosapien War. The moon was heavily fortified and most of the facilities on the planet were underground tunnels, some of which were pressurized with breathable atmosphere.

Tethys[]

Tethys, a moon of Saturn heavily mined before the "Golden Age of the Mankind". The Homeworlds used prison labor to mine it so extensively that by the time of the Second Neosapien Revolt, Tethys appeared tortured and irregular in shape. Prisoners were promised freedom after their terms of service on Tethys, but after the opening on the mines on Mars at the beginning of the Golden Age, both the moon and its prison work force were abandoned. These transported prisoners eventually became the Pirate Clans of Saturn, and Tethys became their primary base of operation before the discovery of Chaos.

Trivia[]
