Unless my eyes skipped over it, no one else has answered ckssv's question. I believe the density of Saturn is around .69 g/cm^3.

Yeah it's usually around .7, but mrburrito still has to give us the official answer to the question I answered.


Sorry, I missed that :oops:

I believe the answer to crypten's question is Europa, Jupiter, and it's fine.

To continue and clarify... who is going to post the next question?
(It got kind of confusing when 2 questions and 2 answers collided...)

You do all realize the focus of the event has changed and that the vast majority of these questions are not relevant, right?

Correct and I know the topics have changed, but I doubt that there won't be any questions at all on the basics, and even if there aren't, it's always good to know about them.
