Saturn Planet Is Losing Its Rings At A Maximum Rate, Says NASA'sSatellites

Saturn planet is sixth from the Sun. After Jupiter, it is the second largest planet in our Solar System. The planet has a speciality in its appearance, unlike any other planet. It has significant Rings around it. The prominent ring system mostly consists of ice particles, rocks and dust. 63 moons revolve around it, along with hundreds of other moonlets. Why is Saturn in news? It is because according to NASA's new research Saturn is losing its rings.


The Voyager 1 and 2 satellites have made the observations where they state that the rings are disappearing at a maximum rate. The reports have been shown so a decade ago. The main reason for it is, Saturn's Gravity and Magnetic Feild. They are getting pulled into the planet's atmosphere.

James O'Donoghue of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland has said, "We estimate that this 'Ring Rain' drains an amount of water that could fill in an Olympic-sized swimming pool in half an hour". Adding to this he continues by saying, "From this alone, the entire ring system will be gone in 300 million years".


Furthermore," According to Cassini-spacecraft measured ring material detected falling into Saturn's Equator, the rings now have less than 100 million years to live. This is relatively short, compared to Saturn's age of over 4 billion years". James is the lead author of a study on Saturn's Ring.


The formation of these rings is a topic which kept scientists wondering all the time. The origin of these rings is the matter of question here. Did they form with the formation of the planet or have been acquired later in its life? The recent research has now given us a straight answer to this question.


The diminishing nature exhibited by the rings now gives us a chance to assume that they might be no older than 100 million years. What once was a thick B-ring has now become a little thin C-ring, so, James says, "We are lucky to be around to see Saturn's rings system, which appears to be in the middle of its lifetime".

Adding to this he says, "However, if rings are temporary, perhaps we just missed out on seeing giant ring systems of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune, which have only thin Ringlets, Today!". The system might be in its middle stages where it starts to get diminished by ring rain at a time.
