Saturn's atmospheric environment is one of powerful winds, going 250 miles per hour, and temperatures from -270 degrees to +80 degrees. With winds like these, it is hard to have peace and quiet.
The region where it is 80 degrees sounds pretty friendly, but if it got to be -200 degrees, we'd be pretty cold!
The air of Saturn is made of ammonia, sulfur, and water.
Overall, this environment sounds very unfriendly to life as we know it on earth.
