The age debate has taken another turn.
As NASA’s Cassini dove close to Saturn in its final year, the spacecraft provided intricate detail on the workings of Saturn’s complex rings, new analysis shows.
They’re the solar system’s most iconic feature, but how and when Saturn’s rings formed have remained a mystery for centuries.
New NASA research confirms that Saturn is losing its iconic rings at the maximum rate estimated from Voyager 1 & 2 observations made decades ago. The rings are being pulled into Saturn by gravity as a dusty rain of ice particles under the influence of Saturn’s magnetic field.
A new analysis of Cassini data could shed light on the origins of the massive belts
ONE of Nasa’s former top engineers has claimed that there are alien spaceships hiding in Saturn’s rings.
Images from the Cassini spacecraft are most detailed ever taken, and include previously unseen features within the rings.
NASA’s Saturn-orbiting spacecraft, Cassini, has begun an unprecedented mission to skim the planet’s rings.
