Scientists at Tel Aviv University in Israel just figured out exactly how long a day is on Saturn.
Before these guys came around, it wasn't entirely sure just how long a day was on this gas giant.
Now, thanks to these Israeli scientists (who have discovered many other things), we now know that a day on Saturn is exactly 10 hours, 32 minutes, and 44 seconds, according to Blastr.

Why was it so hard to figure this information out?
Well, when scientists are trying to figure out how long a day is on a specific planet, they usually focus on a solid object, like a rock, and track its movements.
Since Saturn is mostly made up of gases, scientists had to figure out a new way of doing this. Instead of focusing on a rock, they focused on the magnetic field of the planet's axis.
By doing this, scientists were able to pin down pretty much the exactly how long a day is on Saturn.
This information will help future astronauts and scientists alike-oh, and Science geeks who just love learning new information about our Solar System.
