What would happen if you tried to land on Saturn?

There is no solid surface to the darn thing. You would sink into deeper and hotter atmospheric layers until the pressures eventually crushed you and your puny space craft like an egg in a vise. There would be no mercy...no hope of escape...and at the same time you would be incinerated like an ant under a magnifying glass in sunlight.

And no one would hear you SCREAM!!
