Saturn s porous moon, Hyperion, is the largest known nonspherical moon in the solar system. The potato-shaped satellite has a constantly changing chaotic rotation, with tugs from the nearby moon, Titan, keeping Hyperion from a circular orbit. Hyperion blasted the Cassini spacecraft with static electricity during a close flyby in 2005, according to a study that reanalyzed the…

Planet with the most rings


Saturn has the most recognizable ring system. Before 1979 when Voyager 1 transmitted a single photograph of Jupiter s rings, Saturn was the only known planet with a ring system. Since that time, Jupiter s rings have been observed in detail from several spacecrafts, including Voyager 2, Galileo and New Horizons, as well as the Hubble Space Telescope. Scientists have also discovered…

Is reporting that astronomers at the University of New South Wales have discovered an Earthlike planet just 16 light-years away. The planet, dubbed Gliese 832c, is orbiting a red dwarf star half the mass and radius of our own sun. Gliese 832c has an orbital period of about 35 days, and a mass more than five times that of Earth s. More importantly, however, Gliese 832c is orbiting…
