NASA's Cassini spaceship, which made the closest flights to Saturn, looked back at detailed pictures of small raviolis-like branches embedded in the rings of the planet.
The images show that the surface of these unusual heaths are covered with materials from Saturn rings and frozen grain cereals flow out of the larger moon than Enceladus's planet. The research can help explain how competitive processes shape these detail, NASA said in a statement. "The lovely black walks meet these strange little complaints let us collaborate with Saturn's rings," said Bonnie Buratti from NASA's Jet Painting Laboratory in the USA.
"We see more evidence of the seriousness and dynamism of Saturn's ring and moon system," said Buratti, who led the team. The research, published in the Science journal, from data collected by six of the Cassini instruments before the mission was complete in 2017, clearly confirms the fact that there is a dust and ice from the rings standing up to the hills. T is within and near the circles. Scientists also believed the moon surface was very fertile, again confirming that they had been created in many a variety because chicken material was settled on a dense siren which, in turn, could have the remains of a larger object. broke apart.
Policing also helps to explain their shape: Instead of being polished, they look like blobby and ravioli, tPage 2 tmatched around the middle. "We found out that these hills are wrapping ice sheets and dust from the rings to create the little skirts around the compressions," Buratti said. "A body would be closer together in the shape of a wall as gravity pulls the material inside," he said. "This process is perhaps proceeding around the circles and the circle circles are most promising to round the correct materials. The more detailed comments on these tiny rings can tell us more about the behavior of the circles. T They have to see in their own right, ”said Linda Spilker's Project Scientist Project Linda.
Of the inspected satellites, landlords are the closest to Saturn – Daphnis and Pan – the most significant converters. The smells of Atlas, Prometheus and Pandora, further out of Saturn, are also rounded – but they are also covered with the clear ice cream and the fog from the poured spikes. of Enceladus. The main game of the puzzle was Cassini's Speciniter Mapible (In-Ingered Mappping) (VIMS), which gathered light to see the human eye and also some infra red light of longer waves. The six zebra-style uber leaflets are held between December 2016 and April 2017, including all Cassini's visual speed observance which explores the electromagnetic spectrum.
They worked side by side with the instruments which explored the dust, plasma and magnetic fields and how these elements link to the moon. There are still questions, including what caused the hills to create. Scientists will use their new data to design models and could apply the vision to small gaps around other plans and even asteroids.
