Will the rings around Saturn eventually make a moon?

Nelson Joseph

It is unlikely that Saturn’s ring system will ever form one large moon. Saturn has an extensive ring system, with more than ten different sections to it. However, the ring system is extremely thin, just ten metres (30 feet) thick on average, and is made up of mostly very small ice particles, so even if a moon was made from all the ring particles it would only be a few hundred kilometres across.

There are many moonlets located within the ring system that are proposed to have formed from material in the rings, but these are usually from

The rings of Jupiter

Did you know that Jupiter has rings like Saturn? Only recently have we been able to study them.

The gas giants Jupiter and Saturn have been known about and observed since ancient history. During the Renaissance period and with the dawn of the telescope, Saturn was characterised by its mesmerising ring system whereas Jupiter was the hulking brute of the Solar System, known for the swirling tempest blooming on its south equatorial belt that was later dubbed the Great Red Spot. Scientists identified a similar ring system on Uranus, so when Voyager 1 began its flyby of Jupiter in early

Video Scrubber in Photoshop

In the October 2012 issue of Photoshop User (p. 92), I briefly mentioned that you can turn the Touch Ring on your tablet into a video scrub wheel when working in a video editor or QuickTime, but what about Photoshop? Photoshop handles video, so can the tablet be set up for that, too?

Of course! It’s true that both the Standard and Extended versions of Photoshop CS6 now allow you to edit video clips and, with so many people shooting videos, it’s becoming a common need to edit video quickly and easily. This is where the

Ring breakdown

What are Jupiter’s rings made of, how big are they and how were they formed?

Halo ring

The innermost halo ring stretches from around 92,000km (57,000 miles) to just over 120,000km (78,000) and is the thickest of Jupiter’s rings through the vertical. It’s shaped like a torus and is significantly less bright than the main ring despite being many times wider and thicker. The dust particles that the Halo ring is composed of are less than 15 micrometres in diameter and are mostly derived from the main ring.

Main ring

This narrow ring is just 6,500km (4,000 miles) wide and

All About…NEPTUNE.

A frozen world on the outermost limits of our Solar System, Neptune is a mysterious planet with its own unique characteristics.

Each planet is unique, and Neptune’s claim to fame is being the first planet to be discovered not by observation, but by prediction. French astronomer Alexis Bouvard spent a lot of time closely observing the orbit of Uranus, and detected a gravitational perturbation that he deduced could only be explained by the existence of another planet. From his observations, other astronomers calculated the location of Neptune. To be fair, Galileo actually spotted Neptune more than 200 years before, but
