Introduction – Astronomers or scientist had analyzed the data obtained from the craft that flew between the Saturn’s planet and its rings plunging to its death within the giant gas atmosphere last September. The rings around Saturn are few hundred million years old only and appeared far less massive than thought previously.
Discovery – Scientists suggest that rings probably are the remains of at least one now deceased moon, ancient leftovers from the stuff that had formed the planet. The origin of Saturn rings puzzled scientists for decades and it formed around 4 billion years ago. Rings may be formed due to constant bombardment of debris from the more distant solar system should have made the icy bands appear darker than they are.
Scientist estimated its rings to heavy to be formed recently because of less availability of materials available in space. The issue was resolved by the craft and during their mission it was swooped between Saturn rings 22 times. Astronomers in craft took daredevil step and measured the difference in the gravitational tug.
Disclosing – Measurements took revealed that the B ring formed from 80 percent of total mass and about 15 billion kilograms. That’s 0.4 times mass of Saturn’s innermost moon Mimas, a lightweight acceptable to be young. There were other scientists also who had also proved the similar data from different space craft with few less or more information. The gravitational force that pulled the craft is still unexplainable or maybe they are massive as two Mimases but lighter than Esposito had hoped.
There are also dusts raining that supports the rings along with the detection from the space craft arrived at Saturn in 2004 displaying a still bright rings collected too much dust pollutions in order to retain their youthful shine for billions of years. Results of those scientists and space craft are conflicting.
Conclusion – Mystery is still unrevealed of how rings are formed, the guess work of rings made up of half the masses of Mimas was ripped around 200 million years ago. They are happy with the ability to form a space craft and launch it to Saturn. Other scientist came with new assumptions that formations of rings are one-off event and may be Saturn had gone through cycles of moon and rings. Few more end explanations by scientists is that if a former outermost moon of Saturn had moved inward a bit that would have destabilized the whole moon system?
