'Tis the Season -- for Plasma Changes at Saturn
Pasadena CA (JPL) May 06, 2013
Researchers working with data from NASA's Cassini spacecraft have discovered one way the bubble of charged particles around Saturn - known as the magnetosphere - changes with the planet's seasons. The finding provides an important clue for solving a riddle about the planet's naturally occurring radio signal. The results might also help scientists better understand variations in Earth's magnetosphere and Van Allen radiation belts, which affect a variety of activities at Earth, ranging from space ... read more
