Generally, the article is a bout new astronomical findings and knowledge that earlier astronomers never had concerning the Saturn’s F ring. This new knowledge has been made possible by the hard work of scientists on NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. In a nut shell, there is a discovery of small objects in the size of half mile, punching or colluding within the Saturn’s F ring causing scientific glittering trails alaso called ‘mini objects’.
It is to be recognized that these latest findings have pushed the astronomical knowledge a notch higher by not only confirming that the F ring is saturn’s unique and weirdest ring, but also showing how dynamic the ring really is. For instance, it is common knowledge in the scientific world that large objects like Prometheus have a capability of creating channels, ripples, and snowballs in the F ring. However, what seemed elusive to many scientists was what happens to the snowballs after their creation. Scientists on NASA’s Cassini spacecraft have actually found a solution to this complexity. Earlier knowledge for instance, found that some of these snowballs were broken down while others nobody knowing what happened to them. But this new findings actually found that some of these snowballs survives and strike the F ring independently being that each has its own orbit.
The critical part of the finding is that the ‘mini objects’ tend to strike the F ring at low speeds of about 4 mph (6.4 km/h) and subsequently forcign glittering out of the famous F ring. The result is that a hidden tiny trails of approximately 20 to 110 miles is left behid. Important to note is the correlation between the circumference of F ring and the mini jets. The disparity is so wide in favour of F ring making it more difficult for astronomers to locate the mini objects.
