In a recent blog post, NASA has revealed the observations made by its Cassini mission that ended back in 2017 regarding the rings of Saturn. The observations detail out the structure of Saturn’s rings along with the differences between two succeeding rings. Cassini mission had ended back in 2017, after it entered Saturn and destroyed itself before sending back a plethora of precious information about Saturn.
It is two years now and the information Cassini had transmitted is still being studied to draw as many observations as possible. On the basis those observations, NASA has come up with the recent blog post to explain the structural inheritance of Saturn’s massive rings. The observations have revealed that each of Saturn’s rings have a completely unique structure and have hardly anything in common with each other. The observations also talk about the moons that have the capability of shaping the rings or changing the ring’s shape. The Cassini mission had gathered a sensational amount of data and before scientists decided to head it towards destruction, it had done some remarkable discoveries. The Cassini mission is probably one of NASA’s most successful space expeditions and will continue to keep scientists engaged in drawing observations through all the information it collected two years ago.
Also, images from the dawn mission have shown an unusual mountain, which NASA has termed as Ahuna Mons, which according to them is the largest known mountain on the largest known asteroid in our solar system, Ceres. NASA explained the existence of Ahuna Mons through an all new theory that also explains how the vertical streaks might have appeared on the slopes of Ahuna Mons instead of the old craters. NASA also notified that the Dawn Mission, which is orbiting Ceres has exhausted fuel needed to keep its satellites pointed towards Earth.
