UTILITY of SATURN`S MOONS



Now that that the moon No. 60 (located between Methone and Pallene), has been discovered (May/2007/with the wide-angle camera of the probe Cassini), orbiting around Saturn, one asks oneself for the meaning and utility of this discovery. The Cassini-Huygens is a joint mission between NASA, ESA (European Space Agency) and ASI (Agenzia Spatiali Italiana), to explore the Saturnian system, since 1997.

1) The moons that orbit Saturn vary in size, forms, age and origin. Some exhibit rocky, porous or ice surfaces. Others have crater, valleys and a few :tectonic activity. Carl Murray (Queen Mary, University of London: QMUL), a Cassini Imaging Professor, says that it is posible find more moons compose of ice and rocks.
2) Placing mirrors in the surfaces of certain moons, would be possible to set to Saturn always by day.
3) Excepting Titan (the saturnian but great moon, atmosphere with NH3 and methane, able to lodge life and Enceladus: possessing of geysers with water), some small moons like: Franz, Mimas, Hyperion, Pallene, Methone, Polydepsus, Svadi, Erriapo, Narva, Ymir, Yjiraq, etc., could be transported to other places, equipping them with mirrors, turning Earth always by day. Although one does not know if this kind of transfer can cause severe energetic changes in our Solar System.
4) To be used like perennial Saturn’s observatories and trasmissors of data.
5) With installed reflectors of solar light in these moons -directed towards the ring of ice and rocks of Saturn- the planet could work like a gigantic space light.
