When Pip asked for a tour of the planet, Saturn, as part of his Bucket List Tour, I enthusiastically agreed. But due to Sallie's illness and our hectic schedule, we had to postpone our trip. This week, we finally jumped into my spaceship and headed into outer space with a few friends.
Here we are in my spaceship, flying towards Saturn.
How Saturn Got its NameSaturn is named for the Roman god of agriculture. The Greek equivalent was Cronos, father of Zeus/Jupiter. Other civilizations have given different names to Saturn, which is the farthest planet from Earth that can be observed by the unaided human eye. Source: Nasa
Since Saturn is mostly made of hydrogen and helium, and has dangerous wind storms, we stopped on an orbiting planet for a closer look.
I'm not sure if it was the abundant consumption of beer and cheetos, but we almost left Pip behind!
Afterwards, we stopped at our favorite space martini bar for a round of drinks to celebrate our long standing friendship.
Dearest Pip, you are brighter than the stars, moon and sun. I am a better Alien for having met you. I hope we have many more adventures to come, in this time and beyond.
