If you like it then you should have put a ring on it.

Sharp ionosphere.  I would definitely not hit it.

 Being the Geek tab I was guessing it would be a star. Turns out its a planet...fair enough.

If Saturn is unable to radiate heat, how can it appear hot to outside observation?

Do you have the original of that?

Is it weird that when I was a kid I used to be afraid of being on Saturn for some reason? No idea how I'd get there, but I used to wonder what it would be like to "fall into" Saturn or Jupiter. You'd probably die very quickly, but I wonder what that minute would be like. Would it be dark, even if you were on the sun side, or would the sun look like a smaller version of itself, illuminating clouds? Would you hear the wind, or would your eardrums explode instantly? What would the final fate of your body be? You'd eventually sink deep enough until you either hit a layer where the buoyancy of your body matched the liquid hydrogen, or "landed" on the rocky core.

Thinking about this seriously scared the shiat out of me when I was like seven.

In before the slut-shaming comments.

Well, and interesting tidbit is that the gravity at the "surface" of Saturn, i.e., the apparent radius of the planet as seen through a telescope, is very close to one Earth gravity.  Presumably there would be some altitude between the vacuum of space and the depths of the gas giant where the pressure would be about one atmosphere as well (though unbreathable).  I do not know what the temperature would be at that level, but it would be wicked cool if there were an altitude about Saturn at which you could sit in an open-gondola balloon (it would have to be a hot hydrogen balloon) and need only a warm coat and an air mask to stay alive.  Though the air from your mask would be flammable on Saturn, so probably not.
