    Saturn 0.69

    Earth is denser than water, as are all terrestrial planets because they are made up of solid material, which is denser than liquid. The giant gaseous planets on the outside of our solarsystem- Jupiter, Saturn etc- also have very dense solid cores but the vast majority of them is made of gas- which is less dense than water. Therefore their average density is less than that of water and if there was a bath tub big enough for Saturn to fit into, it would float!

    Human blood is denser than water. That's why the Earth may once explode if it proves unable to sustain the burden in the form of Mankind.
