First, something enormous strikes Jupiter. Then a huge spot appears on Venus. Now, something has smashed through Saturn’s F ring. Is our solar system under bombardment by an asteroid swarm? So far, nobody is sure. We just hope whatever it is doesn’t hit the earth next!
The Discover website reports that the Cassini satellite, which has been orbiting Saturn for 5 years, has sent us an image of what looks like a object lodged in one of the planet’s thinner rings. Let’s hope that we here on earth don’t have to start ducking soon.
