On Saturn have found a rain


Astronomers have studied the data obtained by the probe Cassini in 2017 when the spacecraft flew by between the atmosphere of Saturn and internal rings. It has turned out that numerous microscopic fragments, forming a peculiar rain fall from rings on the planet. It is reported in the press release on EurekAlert!. Scientists have managed to analyse data about 2,7 thousand particles of dust taken by the probe when those fell in the atmosphere of the gas giant. Onboard the device there was an ion-neutral mass spectrometer which has allowed to define the chemical composition of the caught substance. By estimates, every second Saturn takes several tons of substance most of which part consists of water ice (95 percent) and molecular hydrogen. However researchers have also revealed silicates (the main component of rocky asteroids) which accumulate on the surface of ice bodies as a part of rings. Besides, traces of organic substances, including hydrocarbons methane, butane and propane have been found; ammonia, molecular nitrogen, carbon and carbon dioxide. The chief supplier of substance in the atmosphere of Saturn is the ring of D which plays a major role in formation of the chemical composition of the atmosphere of the gas planet.
