"Saturn was the time of the ancient Greeks, a titan feared and the father of Zeus himself. In its vastness, a very strongly god who dominates our solar system, being wrapped up in gase. Hydrogen says his word seriously in the composition of the "jacket" wrapping its essence, leaving less room for helium and other gas. The heart of god Saturn was so bad that as punishment, it was a petrified as a planet. Saturn, the gas giant with a heart petrified as ice, doesn’t have the feature to own enough love for advanced life forms. And he showed his weakness by winds of up to 1800 km / hour. Its magnetic field was taken to compete with that of Jupiter, but has fallen behind due to his not so noble goals. Angrily, the field sent messengers to his owner who as soon as he heard that the Earth makes its competition, he was bulged at the equator and flattened at the poles to the offense. He was so angry that his heart warmed to 11 700 degrees Celsius. With so much heat inside, the atmosphere has thinned since it didn’t wanted to suffocate the giant. The atmosphere has tried to appease his master by not making major storms, but because the lider was really irritability Atmosphere created giant polar vortex, a very special gift that made him proud and made it a unique planet. The biggest secret was that his heart has been placed in the sky and then became a planet, it had to repent to atone for the crimes he had done while he was on Earth.
Oh, I almost forgot the “kids” of Saturn, of which most are well behaved Tethys, Rhea and Enceladus. At the cosmic school teachers praised the three wonderful students. The father was very proud of his children and not feared that they would not take his place, as had the evil titan did.

In a period of turmoil spacecrafts continued to fly over it, he had to designate someone to protect. Being very competitive, he thought it would be nice to name a moon whose nucleus has broken away from its heart knowing that he could have full confidence in them.
Rhea was very proud of its history full of glory, especially by its discoverer, Giovanni Domenico Cassini, but Enceladus jumped up, reminding of William Herschel, one who owed his fame. Poor Tethys withdrew from the race because it is not considered worthy of honor offered. Both said they had water in their composition, vital for life. Rhea’s temperatures were wranging from +174 degrees to -220 degrees Celsius. Contrarely, Enceladus was boasting that it was a possible candidate for extraterrestrial life, the evidence being brought to Earth by the Cassini spacecraft. Rhea said her body has bright areas produced by volcanic ice but Saturn shouted: Quiet!
Cassini probe will bring ice and life from the moon Enceladus, the great winner that will name the Cassini contest winner.
