Saturn May Have Given Birth To a Baby Moon

Unknown Lamer posted about 5 months ago | from the probably-an-alien-spacecraft dept.

Space 71

astroengine (1577233) writes "NASA's Saturn-orbiting Cassini spacecraft has imaged something peculiar on the outermost edge of the gas giant's A-ring. A bright knot, or arc, has been spotted 20 percent brighter than the surrounding ring material and astronomers are interpreting it as a gravitational disturbance caused by a tiny moon. "We have not seen anything like this before," said Carl Murray of Queen Mary University of London. 'We may be looking at the act of birth, where this object is just leaving the rings and heading off to be a moon in its own right.'"

Nah, the Saturnians just did yet another launch.. You'd think they would have learned by now that they're really not good at it. Look at all that debris they left in orbit. That's what it's going to look like around the Earth in a few thousand years, if we don't start cleaning up after ourselves.

I don't know why he's such a depraved villian, but I encourage everyone to report that sick fuck to the police and get him removed from society until he stops destroying innocent lives. His name is Alexander Peter Kowalski and he lives at 903 East Division St., Syracuse, NY 13208 (he was born 01/31/1965; his mother is Jan Kowalski, born 12/03/1933. I encourage everyone to call his neighbors and warn them that he may have raped and\or murdered their children and uses HOSTS files to evade police detection when he looks at child porn. If anyone lives in his area, I suggest printing out some fliers and stapling them around his neighborhood with a large "PAEDO WARNING!" on the top.

Catastrophism (1)

Daetrin (576516) | about 5 months ago | (#46752359)

I'm kind of glad neither Velikovsky [wikipedia.org] nor James P Hogan [wikipedia.org] are still alive to blow this out or proportion. Velikovsky had a fundamentally good idea [wikipedia.org] but got carried away with it, and James P Hogan wrote some good books related to the subject before his brain went soft in his old age.

Re:Catastrophism (1)

Neon Spiral Injector (21234) | about 5 months ago | (#46752543)

You think Velikovsky got carried away? John Ackerman [firmament-chaos.com] picked up where he left off.

But I came to leave the same comment. Well, the Velikovshy part, I didn't expect to find anyone who had read Jim's stuff. I miss him, I used to e-mail back and forth a occasionally. I do own copies of all of his books, most in hardback, and the first editions of the last dozen or so. I never had to heart to tell him that his last few were not very good.

Anyway, here's to the new baby moon in Saturn's cradle.

Re:Catastrophism (1)

WasteOfAmmo (526018) | about 5 months ago | (#46759601)

I have to say I miss Hogan also. My wife and I have also read most of Hogan's books and thoroughly enjoyed them. We are currently introducing our youngest to Hogan by reading Code of the Lifemaker as a family. His writing was not as good near the end and in all he did not publish near enough for my liking. I've yet to find a similar author to replace him in my library. If you have any suggestions I'd be interested in hearing them.

That all said, I had not heard of Velikovsky or John Ackerman... will have to check them out.

Re:Catastrophism (1)

Neon Spiral Injector (21234) | about 5 months ago | (#46759783)

Velokovsky (and Ackerman) wrote about the birth of Venus, and Mars waging war on the Earth as an actual hypothesis as to how the solar system got to how we view it today. Hogan, as was often his style, took that idea and wove a fictional story around it.

I wish I had recommendations of other lesser known authors of a similar style, but I've never encountered any. For the most part I probably read the same books that most techies do, Asimov, Gibson, Stephenson. It was just a fluke that my mother bought me the fourth book in Hogan's Giants series for Christmas one year, and despite not having read the previous three books I was hooked.

Re:Catastrophism (0)

Re:Catastrophism (0)

Why? Velikovsky's track record is amazing given his methods.

Re:Catastrophism (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 5 months ago | (#46756277)

There are certain topics for which simplistic narratives dominate over thorough investigation and rational discourse. These include:

(1) Anything about Velikovsky or mythology: Most people simply assume that mythology = myth. Very few people take the time to investigate any observed correspondences between the stories held by cultures -- and even when suggestions are made for scientific explanations.

(2) Anything to do with peer review: This is really the most curious, but it is true that most people online who advocate for the wonders of peer review never actually took the time to look at peer review studies of peer review.

(3) Plasmas: There is very low awareness of what a plasma is, how they are modeled and what they tend to do in the laboratory -- and this is actually quite extraordinary, as the plasma state for matter represents 99.%+ of the matter we can actually see with telescopes. So, most of the discourse is dedicated to stuff that is hypothesized, which we cannot see. People might want to think deeply about that.

(4) Philosophy: The narrative is that Big Science has not only defeated religion, but also apparently philosophy.

(5) Bias: Daniel Kahneman has produced some very important work on the subject of how the mind works, based upon many hundreds of little experiments designed to evaluate how we make decisions in uncertain situations. It's very important work which he's received the Nobel prize for, but the very people who need to understand it are the ones who do not read about it.

(6) Arguments Against Conventional Theories: Probably wrong anyways, so why bother listening, right?

(7) How Physicists Are Trained: This one is particularly surprising to me personally, because one would think with all of the focus in the media on consensus in the global warming debate, that there would be more interest in learning about how the consensus emerges. Jeff Schmidt, who was a former Physics Today editor for 19 years, blew the whistle on this one by exposing the inner workings on the physics PhD program back in 2000 with his book, Disciplined Minds. And it was a scathing review. But, nobody noticed it -- and to this day, we still see PhD students claiming to have discovered how awful the PhD program is. Needless to say, the consensus is created in the graduate programs. It does not emerge either naturally nor independently in the minds of experts.

There are likely many more, but these are the ones which seem to be causing a lot of problems with online discourse today.

You're only half right. These days no one has a problem with proposing that myths may be based on scientific realities. There have been intriguing proposals about the relation between the myth of Atlantis and the erruption of Thera [wikipedia.org] , a similar or identical link to the parting of the Red Sea, and several interesting theories about what might have inspired the various deluge mythologies [wikipedia.org] .

The problem with Velikovsky is that his proposed solutions were batshit crazy. If the Uniformitarians were insisting that 2 + 2 = 3, then Velikovsky was right that they were getting it wrong. But his proposed counter-solution was that 2 + 2 = 10000!

We have pretty good evidence that the solar system is in a fairly stable situation in regards to the major bodies. There's certainly no astronomical record of any significant changes for the past several hundred years. (And i suspect much longer if one takes Chinese astronomical observations into account.)

But we are supposed to believe that between about 10k years ago and approximately 1 AD, the solar system underwent a MASSIVE reconfiguration. One or more new planets were created and several planets, including Earth, significantly changed their orbits, involving several VERY close passes between those planets. Then after all those planets finished swapping places and crossing paths with each other they just settled down into a configuration that just coincidentally also could have been stable for the last several hundred million years, and then haven't budged an inch (metaphorically speaking) since then.

The other theories i mentioned in the first paragraph have good physical evidence to indicate that they are at least plausible. As far as i'm aware Velikovsky had no physical evidence supporting his claims. In fact the full version of his theory is something like "If, in total contradiction to all present appearances, the solar system of a few thousand years ago was an entirely chaotic system, AND we rewrite several portions of recorded history to make points in different timelines line up better, THEN we might be able to explain certain myths." I'm sorry, but Occam's Razor just does not work that way.

Even if you doubt his line of reasoning, his predictions are very interesting. Perhaps you can interpret his narrative as, at the very least, a very productive muse.

Re:Catastrophism (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 5 months ago | (#46758501)

Also, while this is unrelated to velikovsky, there is that strange alignment of the earth's ecliptic with the harmonics in the CMB data. The presence of that tells us some basic assumption being made by astronomers is wrong.

Re:Catastrophism (1)

Daetrin (576516) | about 5 months ago | (#46769869)

Doesn't a gas giant "giving birth" to a moon count? Hot Venus? Radio signal from Jupiter?

No, it doesn't. Velikovsky theorized that Venus was ejected from Jupiter. We have no good theories for how or why a gas giant would spontaneously produce and then eject a smaller terrestrial planet, not to mention no physical evidence that i've seen that it has ever actually happened.

What is going on here is that some of the material in Saturn's rings has accreted together into a moonlet. It's already been theorized that that's how at least some of Saturn's other 100+ moonlets were formed. The only reason that this is at all a surprise is that A: there's still enough material left in the rings after forming all the other moonlets and B: that we're caught it in the middle of the process . And as for (B), i haven't seen any estimates of how long it's been going on, but i suspect that it's been taking place slowly over millions of years, and we're only seeing it now because we've finally gotten sensitive enough instruments in the right position to detect it.

If so then in one case we have a tiny moon, one of over 100, being formed by a known method over a period of millions of years. And in the other case we have the 2nd largest terrestrial planet, one of just 8 planets total, being formed by an entirely unknown method over the period of a couple thousand years.

The first case provides absolutely no support for the second case.

As for "Hot Venus", that doesn't really provide any evidence for Velikovsky unless you don't believe the greenhouse effect exists.

And i don't know what radio signals from Jupiter have to do with Velikovsky's theories of planetary formation, so i can't really address that.

Even if you doubt his line of reasoning, his predictions are very interesting. Perhaps you can interpret his narrative as, at the very least, a very productive muse.

Oh sure, they're _interesting_. But lots of people make interesting predictions from random theories that aren't based on any solid evidence. Some of those people we call science fiction and fantasy authors, and others we call crackpots, depending on whether they think their "interesting predictions" are actually the truth or just a form of entertainment.

VernonNemitz (581327) | about 5 months ago | (#46752929)

Re:The Birth of a Moon... (1)

Convector (897502) | about 5 months ago | (#46755851)

Not the whole ring system. Only the A-D rings are within the Roche limit. But the phenomenon discussed here is happening in the A-ring, so this limitation does indeed apply. I don't understand how a moon could accrete here.

Re:The Birth of a Moon... (1)

artfulshrapnel (1893096) | about 5 months ago | (#46757199)

Also to my understanding, the nature of Roche's limit is that it only affects objects big enough and with enough spin to experience gravitational-based tidal forces. that suggests that objects below/around that size might temporarily form until they collect enough mass and spin to begin experiencing those forces, after which point they'd break up again?
