    Thank you for sharing this. I watched it several times.

    Wow!

    Tell me again — why we should not spend “valuable resources” on the “wasteful exploration of space”? Huh?

    ohioobserver: because true beauty doesn’t make money for anyone.

    That goes nicely with the picture I put on my desktop

    Does this mean the rings are spinning? For no good reason I always assumed that the rings were geo-stationary and the planet and her moons rotated and orbited, with the rings moving at the same speed as the planet’s rotation. Maybe I should have looked this up before posting, but I’m too excited.
    I’m off to the Google now.

    What a dumb shit I am. Of course they are spinning or they would fall down!
    They do spin around Saturn at different speeds (one source said even in the opposite direction!) and they may rotate about their own axis like our moon does, always keeping the same face Earthward (or Saturnward). And the many moons are the reasons for the gaps in the rings due to gravitational forces.
    And also too as an extra special added big bonus I have learned that one of my two lovely grand daughters has the same name has one of those moons. Thanks Hank!
