Saturn, the Roman God of Farming. The sixth planet out from the sun is best known for its prominent rings - but it is also the only planet in the solar system that could float in water.

Spacedog doesn't care what anyone else says, Saturn has 1 moon, Titan - and 6 other somewhat smaller, but still spherical moonlets - and many dozens of other smaller satellites, more roughly potato shaped, as captured asteroids tend to be.
