Rings


I've seen many comments on this beautiful picture from Cassini, but I think the best has been Emily Lakdawalla's. What caught my attention in particular was where she started talking about the density of Saturn's rings: the inner edge of the B ring is so dense the ring particles are more or less touching, so that an astronaut could climb from one to the next. Now isn't that a cool mental image?
