Q. Are you aware of the planet that on throwing in a big enough water body, will start floating?

Ans. Yes! Saturn though being the second largest planet in the Solar System, can float on water.  Actually, it is mainly composed of gases and does not have a solid surface, giving it the lowest density of all the planets in the Solar System, even lesser than that of water. Therefore, being lighter than water, it can float on water.
