Saturn is the sixth planet from its sun and the second-largest in Sol, after Jupiter.
Saturn's interior is composed of a core of iron–nickel and rock (silicon and oxygen compounds). Electrical current within the metallic hydrogen layer is thought to give rise to Saturn's planetary magnetic field, which is weaker than Earth's, but has a magnetic moment 580 times that of Earth due to Saturn's larger size.The outer atmosphere is generally bland and lacking in contrast, although long-lived features can appear. Wind speeds on Saturn can reach 1,800 km/h (500 m/s), higher than on Jupiter, but not as high as those on Neptune. It also has a prominent ring system that consists of nine continuous main rings and three discontinuous arcs and that is composed mostly of ice particles with a smaller amount of rocky debris and dust.
In the late 2050s CE, private Human companies set off to establish a variety of mining posts on the many moons of Saturn and made a hefty profit with current spacecrafts relying so heavily on it.
It was not until a decade later in 2060 CE when the United Nations finally stepped in and established a permanent colony on Titan, one of Saturn's many moons, designed to assist these miners and research Saturn itself.
