NASA's last NASA spacecraft may end its dead diving mission into Saturn's sensation, but crafts data remains by scientists' scientists.
On Thursday, the craft operator, NASA JPL, told the Cassini search about the planet's unusual ring system, and five parts inside it.
“The new research, from data collected by six of the Cassini instruments before the mission was complete in 2017, clearly confirms that the dust and ice from the rings are affecting the Moon's inner and interior. near the rings, ”wrote NASA JPL in a publication.
These lunches, called Atlas, Ephimetheus, Pandora, Daphnis, and Pan, cross the rings of A, F and E at Saturn.
But unlike the oldest accurate gaps we're getting to find out, like the World Moon, all five are “tidy” and wrong.
“We found that these branches gather ice and dust particles from the rings to create the little skirts around the compressions,” said Bonnie Buratti, the head of 35 scientists who spoke about the human remains. survey.
“A body would be closer together as a drawing would pull in.”
NASA points out that this may be an ongoing process, that the complaints are still being cleared of circle materials, and slowing down their areas.
Cassini data also showed tidbits of the moon shape. The hills seem to be closer to other forms of iron and other organisms, and the rear ice chickens and other debris are covered.
Scientists are still not sure how these hills were created; whether it was before the ring was created but damaged or simply fragments of Saturn rings that have grown over time.
Moreover, this is also a question which the scientists are planning to place for Neptune and Uranus, two great neighbors Solar solar system with less strong circuit systems.
“Do one of the glens in the great Uranus and Neptune ice sheets connect with their solid rings to create features similar to those on the Saturn ring legs? Buratti asked.
“These are questions to be answered by future missions,” she has come to an end.
