Female Speaker: Fire out in space in the last crystals fear before the eternal heaven of fixed stars. Saturn's slow orbit marked the limits of the solar system for the ancient world. It was Galileo, who broke through the darkness aided by his telescope and discovered what would symbolize more than any other planet; the beauty of the solar system. Saturn's cloak of rings constantly changing its appearance as if in a dance around the planet arose the curiosity of observers on earth. What is the nature of these rings? Are they attached on a solid inflexible disc attached to the planet or they perhaps a colorful crowd of fragments hovering around it like bees around a high. Why the rings are separated from one another and why is there wipe so small? Observations of Saturn have revealed that the planet is flatted up the poles to a greater extent than any other planet in the solar system. Does this flattening at the polls have to do with a great speed of Saturn's rotation? The findings of more advanced scientific research only wide in the circle of questions regarding Saturn as the observational data that reached scientists post new challenges to their thinking. Closer observation of Saturn's atmosphere reveled cloud bands, bands that circumscribe the planet. It was discovered that these clouds move to Saturn's atmosphere driven intense storm winds. Could they be related to the radiation omitted by Saturn? Radiation five more intense then it receives from the distance sun. The closer we get to Saturn, the greater the possibility of revealing it's inner secrets and perhaps learning about their relation to the secret of Saturn's magnificent beauty.
