Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest planet in the Solar System, after Jupiter. Saturn is a gas giant with an average radius about nine times that of Earth. While only one-eighth the average density of Earth, with its larger volume Saturn is just over 95 times as massive as Earth. Saturn's interior is probably composed of a core of iron, nickel and rock (silicon and oxygen compounds), surrounded by a deep layer of metallic hydrogen, an intermediate layer of liquid hydrogen and liquid helium and an outer gaseous layer. Electrical current within the metallic hydrogen layer is thought to give rise to Saturn's planetary magnetic field, which is slightly weaker than Earth's and around one-twentieth the strength of Jupiter's. 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 (1,100 mph). Saturn is probably best known for its system of planetary rings, which makes it the most visually remarkable object in the solar system. The rings extend from 6,630 km to 120,700 km above Saturn's equator, average approximately 20 meters in thickness and are composed of 93% water ice with traces of tholin impurities and 7% amorphous carbon. The particles that make up the rings range in size from specks of dust up to 10 m. There are two main theories regarding the origin of the rings. One theory is that the rings are remnants of a destroyed moon of Saturn. The second theory is that…

is only worried about presenting the speech. Even through all the turmoil the young black man makes it through these treacherous events and is rewarded, but must hold his tongue when trying to speak his mind.
The young woman in the middle of the ring before the fight gives Mr. Ellison multiple opportunities to describe the struggle for equality during this time period. She represents how women had just as little choice as the black boys in a society run by white men. The white men threatened…

The Lord of the Rings is the epic trilogy in my life. The Fellowship of the Ring, is without a doubt the best book of the three. Why? The first point I would like to state is that J. R. R. Tolkien, which I will refer to as just Tolkien from this point on, had a world created that no in literature has ever done before. He had created a whole world full of different races, civilizations, and a history for everything in both categories. The sheer detail of it all frightens me and makes me wonder how…
The Ring in all its manifestations; the Japanese novel, the Japanese film, and the American film, although deemed successful in its simplicity function to stage a film instilling horror within its viewers, it also offers much open speculation about the anxiety that is created by the development of communication technologies. All versions introduce startling insights into the relationship between changes in media forms and widespread fears of contagion. For it is this fascination and welcoming…
