Who else can relate to the great middle section of Saturn?

We have let ourselves go during the pandemic, but we are clearly not alone. Researchers at the California Institute of Technology Recently published a new study From the sixth planet in our solar system provides substantial evidence that our neighbors’ ring center is not as solid as many have assumed, but instead a “fuzzy” core vibrating around it “consisting of ice, rock and gas.” This diffuse core extends to about 60% of Saturn’s radius. – a huge jump from 10 to 20% of the radius of the planet that would be occupied by a conventional core,” explain technology reviewWriting earlier this week. We think the feeling we are feeling right now is what many young people today call “visible”.

Astronomers at the California Institute of Technology believe that Saturn is soft and wobbly around the center becauserocky The icy material is soluble in hydrogen, which in turn allows the Pro Planet to act more as a fluid than a fluid More solid than traditional. The team’s new model indicates that Saturn’s diffuse core contains rocks and ice that add up to more than 17 times the mass of the entire Earth.

If Saturn doesn’t have enough effort already, this planet Also, it always seems so farfetched. The new theory put forward by the California Institute of Technology explains that “as the core oscillates, it creates gravitational disturbances that affect the surrounding rings, creating measurable minute ‘waves’.”

There seem to be a lot of implications for the new model, which are a bit too technical to delve into here, but suffice it to say that the sixth planet in our solar system is a tad big, fat, and lopsided. Not that anyone is judging it—scientists hope that NASA’s upcoming Juno mission to Jupiter will reveal similar planetary discoveries, which we’re sure will make Saturn feel less self-aware. And maybe ourselves.
