Used to be really obsessed with Saturn in 3rd grade after doing a project on it... honestly now though, I think the thing I find most exciting about Saturn is Titan. It not only has a substantial atmosphere (which some scientists theorize may be similar to an early Earth atmosphere), it also has rivers and lakes of methane. I'd say it's a pretty good candidate for life in our Solar System.

Sounds like Cronos found a way to deal with sibling rivalry among his children. It's a good thing I didn't think of that when mine were teenagers.

The type-ins are already very liberal.
