Why I Love Saturn!!

I'm not sure why NASA spends all that money on space probes, when 1950s comic book writers already knew everything about all the planets of the solar system...

Some obviously correct Saturn details...

Friendly Hawkmen?!?! Cue Prince Vultan!!

Seriously, are you going to doubt the word of a comic book that is this close to getting the speed of light right?


From Man 'O Mars #1 (1953)

They may have gotten close to the speed of light, but they off by a couple of orders of magnitude in the time to get to from Earth to Saturn traveling at the speed of light. The actual time is closer to 70 MINUTES. http://image.gsfc.nasa.gov/poetry/venus/q89.html
