NASA Research Reveals that Saturn might lose its rings much sooner than expected

Saturn is known and recognised by its iconic rings. They’re the biggest, brightest rings in our solar system. Extending over 280,000 km from the planet; wide enough to fit 6 Earths in a row. But Saturn won’t always look this way. Because its rings are disappearing. Scientists believe they could disappear in less than a 100 million years — which isn’t all that long when you consider that the gas giant itself is more than 4 billion years old.

A New research from NASA shows that the rings, made predominantly of water ice, are being pulled apart by the planet’s gravity and onto Saturn’s surface as deluges of “ring rain.” “We estimate that this ‘ring rain’ drains an amount of water products that could fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool from Saturn’s rings in half an hour,” said James O’Donoghue of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in the US. He is the lead author of the study published in the journal Icarus. “From this alone, the entire ring system will be gone in 300 million years, but add to this the Cassini-spacecraft measured ring-material detected falling into Saturn’s equator, and the rings have less than 100 million years to live,” he added.

“That wasn’t a complete surprise,” said Jack Connerney, who proposed in 1986 that electrically charged ring particles were flowing down magnetic field lines into Saturn’s atmosphere. “We identified Enceladus and the E-ring as a copious source of water as well, based on another narrow dark band in that old Voyager image.”

Scientists have long wondered if Saturn was formed with the rings or if the planet acquired them later in life. The new research favours the latter scenario, indicating that they are unlikely to be older than 100 million years, as it would take that long for the C-ring to become what it is today assuming it was once as dense as the B-ring. “We are lucky to be around to see Saturn’s ring system, which appears to be in the middle of its lifetime. 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,” O’Donoghue said. Various theories have been proposed for the ring’s origin. If the planet got them later in life, the rings could have formed when small, icy moons in orbit around Saturn collided, perhaps because their orbits were perturbed by a gravitational tug from a passing asteroid or comet.

earthquake-mexico-2020

Southern Mexico was hit by a massive earthquake, which killed at least six people, led buildings hundreds of miles away, causing residents to flee their homes and their workplaces in the open air for protection in the streets. The magnitude of the earthquake was 7.5 in the Pacific coastal area around 14 miles toward the south of Crucecita, a beach city located in the southern state of Oaxaca that was very popular among tourists, according to the Mexico national seismological services.

The United States Geological Survey has however measured the magnitude at 7.4; provisional calculations are not uncommon to differ. The very same region was hit on Monday night by another quake estimated in the US to be 4.9. The National Seismological Service of Mexico stated that 1,571 aftershocks were in effect from early Wednesday. It happened at 10:29 (Local time).

Governor of Oaxaca, Alejandro Murat, said at least six citizens in the region had been killed by the earthquake on Wednesday. The Governor also said that approximately 500 homes and four archeological sites and several schools were destroyed. The toll information and the media reports have revealed scrapes from certain damaged Oaxacan buildings.
The President, Mr. Andrés Manuel López Obrador, told a Twitter video, which he posted early in the evening, about one of his series, relaying a series of updates from Mr. León and others. The president said, a phone hit his ear, “collapsed, broken glass, falling signs, walls, but really nothing serious.”

Mr. López Obrador urged all to be alert and calm for further earthquake warnings. “there would be no more harmful post-shocks, hopefully and I wish for all my soul,” he said. Much of the area adjacent to the epicentre, and more than 90 miles from Oaxaca, the state capital, is the nearest city to the city. Buildings swayed over 300 miles Northwest from Mexico City, but local news reports revealed little harm to the rest of the building façades that had fallen away. The Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum of Mexico City said no “significant” impacts from an earthquake had been confirmed by either the security command center or officials carrying out municipal overflights.

The earthquake was pronounced “horrible,” by Flora Pedro Mora, the owner of the Mansiones Cruz del Mar, condo-hotel building near Crucecita. “It was like the film,,” she said, shuddering audibly. But she added that the property was not severely damaged, apart from certain wooden beams that were chucked adrift and fell to earth. While some hotels and resorts, known as Huatulco, began to re-open in the last week in response to the pandemic following a prolonged closure, guests were still at Mansiones Cruz del Mar. Petróleos Mexicanos, the state-owned oil firm, confirmed that the earthquake had led to its refinery temporarily shut-down in the port of Salina Cruz, where a fire quickly erupted.

A “potential threat” from a tsunami across the shores of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, the United States’ National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration said, but revoked it a few hours later. After the tremor, tiny seismic waves were reported by the ocean boots — too little to have a significant impact. Effective offshore earthquakes, such as Fukushima, Japan in 2011 and Aceh, Indonesia province in 2004, can cause devastating tsunamis. But the earthquake that are causing of that kind of damaging waves are tough to anticipate.

Patanjali claims that his package can also be used as coronavirus prevention.
The Corona kit is only available at €545 according to Acharya Balkrishna. The corona package has 30 days of medicines.
Patanjali says that we are researching the drugs on mice and rats.
This kit is not available anywhere now, it will be available in one week in Patanjali shops, Baba Ramdev says.
Since December 2019, we started working on Corona medicines, says Patanjali.
We developed the first clinically controlled Ayurvedic, research, evidence and test-based COVID19 medicine. We performed a clinical case study and controlled clinical trial and found 69% of patients recovered within 3 days and 100% recovered in 7 days, says Baba Ramdev.
We will even test people on fans, says Baba Ramdev.
It is not a booster of immunity, but a treatment for coronavirus, says Baba Ramdev.
Baba Ramdev says that an app is launched to deliver the Corona kit.
The mortality rate was 0 percent and the recovery rate was 100 percent, says Baba Ramdev.
In three days, 69 percent of the people recovered, Baba Ramdev says.
Baba Ramdev says that we have done every work and are going to answer all questions.
Patanjali claimed that the Patanjali Research Institute, Haridwar and Jaipur National Institute of Medical Sciences jointly conducted controlled clinical studies.
After COVID-19, we appointed a team of scientists. First, simulation was carried out and compounds that can suppress the virus and stop it from spreading across the body were identified. Then, Balkrishna said we conducted a case study in hundreds of positive patients and obtained 100 % positive results.
“After taking our medicine the patients of COVID recovered and tested negative after 3-14 days. So we can say the COVID treatment is possible only with Ayurveda. In the next 4-5 days there will be evidence and data from us,” Balkrishna said earlier this month.
