I love how science just keeps moving forward.
We would all like to 'live for ever' wouldn't we ?
From the BBC website: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7141628.stm
"We are able to reach the paradoxical conclusion - because the rings appear so young, they may actually be as old as the Solar System"
'Data from the Cassini probe shows these thin bands of orbiting particles were probably there billions of years ago, and are likely to be very long-lived.
It means we are not in some special time - the giant planet has most likely always provided a stunning view. Previous data had led researchers to believe the rings were created just 100 million years ago, when a huge moon or comet shattered in Saturn's vicinity.'
We truely live in an amazing world -
- and now I feel young.
