They have names of ancient heroes, for example, Mimas, Enceladus, Pandora, Epimedii, Tethys, dione, Prometheus. The most interesting of them is the Janus – he is the closest to the planet, Titan is the largest satellite in the greatest Solar system in mass and size. The film is about the Saturn, All the moons, except for Phoebe, turning in the forward direction. Uranus Seventh planet from the Sun in the Solar system, so poorly lit.

It has a surface in the form of ice, also covered with strips cracks.Through a telescope it is well visible that plusnet Saturn is stronger than Jupiter. Their origin is still a matter of much controversy.

Some researchers believed that, under the balls of ice, where the water is not frozen, can be a primitive life. Far few places in the Solar system awarded such an assumption. In the future, scientists plan to send to the satellite of the Jupiter drilling rig. However, each planet is similar to the following.About Uranium Uranium is In narrow planetary rings.

Space tourism — “Go!”

Ever since then, when the first man left the Earth (and more importantly, successfully got back there) managed a space ship (if someone does not know, this was in 1961), people around the world believe in his imminent future happy in all the visible universe long predicted by science fiction writers: “Yes, with the current rate of technological progress here is just a little magician, the scientists, and we instead of Turkey and Egypt for the weekend to fly to Mars and Saturn!”. And still have been right. Almost.
