Saturn in Fiction

Saturn In Fiction

The picturesque planet Saturn is featured in numerous works of science fiction. Early works of science fiction used Saturn itself as a location for stories, but modern science has shown that the planet has no solid surface on which one could land, and that its atmosphere and temperature are hostile to human life. As a result, the Saturnian system as a whole, including its rings and its extensive system of moons, is a commoner setting for science fiction.

Famous quotes containing the words saturn and/or fiction:

    From you have I been absent in the spring,
    When proud pied April, dressed in all his trim,
    Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing,
    That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    ... all fiction may be autobiography, but all autobiography is of course fiction.
