What are some similarities and differences between Saturn and Uranus?


Dr. Royce: Similarities

Similarities: - Both can be enjoyed by all walks of life - Both are full of gas - Both are reasonably priced Differences: - One is a car, the other is what the kids now-a-days call "a phat booty" - One can make you come, the other can make you go Hope this helps, Dr. Royce


They are both gas giants, both have rings and many moons. Uranus, however, is hazy and unbanded, and most notably has an axial tilt of ninety-eight degrees, so its poles point at the sun much of the time.


Both are mainly gaseous, with probably only the core actually being solid. But Saturn is defined as a gas giant while Uranus is defined as being an ice giant.The difference being a much higher proportion of hydrogen compounds in Uranus, including methane, ammonia and water. Both are far from the Sun, but Uranus is much further than Saturn. Saturn is much larger than Uranus, being the second largest planet in the Solar System. Uranus ithird largest in diameter and volume but only the fourth most massive: Neptune is heavier. Both planets have significant ring systems. Neptune and Jupiter also have faint rings, but Saturn's And Uranus' rings are more impressive. However Uranus' rings are much darker, and weren't discovered for quite some time. Both have a lot of moons. However not only does Saturn have many more moons, but it has one very large moon (Titan) which is the only moon in the Solar System with a significant atmosphere. Both have tilted axes, as do all planets. But Uranus' axis is so heavily tilted that at times in its orbit a whole hemisphere is pointed towards the Sun, and the other hemisphere is in darkness. Both are visible to the naked eye. But Uranus is so faint that it wasn't recognised as a planet until the 18th century. Even though records shoew that ti had been observed and recorded earlier. Uranus is named after a Greek god rather than a Roman god; if it had been named in accordance with the other planets it should have been called Caelus.


Saturn doesn't itch.

I'm not going to just give you the answers, so here are some things you could do some research on: - Atmospheric Compostion - Number of natural satellites - Size - Diameter of rings - Distance from the sun - Tilt
