he telescope James Webb Space affiliate a pot Gained an unprecedented perspective on rings to Saturn through the system nirkam (near infrared camera).
In the photo you can see Saturn a lotor darker at this wavelength Infrared, since the methane gas around it absorbs almost all of the sunlight that reaches its atmosphere. However, the rings from the planet he appear brightwhich reveals an image Saturn Somewhat unusual thanks mosques web.
It was taken as part of a monitoring program commissioned for a capacity test web to detect many moons “weakthat surrounds the planet huge rings Bright. The discovery of other moons could help scientists formulate a more complete picture of the current system Saturn Thus answers questions from his past.
picture show Saturn With clear light details in its ring system, plus several moonsbetween them DebtAnd Enceladus And Thetis. The research team also captured some “deeper additional exposures,” which will allow them to do so notice Other rings of Saturn are not visible, including G and E ring.
more than rings to Saturn It consists of crumbs to Stone And ice. Its particles vary in size; From a grain of sand to the size of any mountain on Earth.
The researchers also analyzed Moon Enceladuswhere they foundgreat columnthat come from the lunar south pole and that cContains water vapor particles; The same shaft that feeds Ring of Saturn E.according a pot.
Also this The first time the planet’s atmosphere was visible at this wavelengthexclusive to web. Large, dark, and fuzzy features in the Northern Hemisphere do not follow the planet’s latitudes, so this image lacks the familiar look usually seen from the deeper layers of Earth’s atmosphere. Saturn.
When comparing the north and south poles of the planet in this image, the differences in appearance are typical of seasonal variations known to Saturn. For example, the planet is currently experiencing northern summer, with winter ending in the southern hemisphere.
telescope web Will continue to monitor Saturn For future research and deepen the data obtained.
