Definitions

  1. Cassini division is actually 2,800 miles across.
  2. The Cassini Division is the main, dark division between Saturn's largest rings (the A and B rings). (Web site)
  3. The Cassini division is in a 2:1 resonance with the moon Mimas. (Web site)
  4. The Cassini Division is a 4,800 km (2,980 mile) wide region between the A Ring and B Ring. (Web site)
  5. Like the Cassini Division, the Roche Division is not empty but contains a sheet of material.

Main Division

  1. The spacecraft was named after the main division in Saturn's rings, called the Cassini Division. (Web site)

Encke Gap

  1. From Earth, the main visible features of the rings are the A, B, and C rings, the Cassini Division and the Encke gap.

Four

  1. He discovered four of Saturn's moons (Tethys, Dione, Rhea, and Iapetus) and a dark division in Saturn's rings (called the Cassini Division). (Web site)

Outer

  1. Ring features visible in this image from the outer ring edge inward include: the A ring, the Cassini Division and the B ring.

Rings

  1. In addition he discovered the Cassini Division in the rings of Saturn (1675). (Web site)
  2. At the Paris observatory he discovered the wide gap in the rings of Saturn now called the Cassini division, as well as four of the planet's moons. (Web site)
  3. Cassini Division A relatively empty gap in Saturn's ring system between the A and B rings, discovered in 1675 by Giovanni Cassini.

Bottom

  1. Part of the actual Cassini division appears at the bottom, along with the A ring and the narrow, outer F ring. (Web site)

Keeler Gap

  1. From bottom to top here (and widest to thinnest) they are the Cassini Division, the Encke Gap and the Keeler Gap.

Relatively Close

  1. Except for the A and B rings, which are separated primarily by the 2,920-mi-wide (4,700-km) Cassini Division, the rings are relatively close to one another. (Web site)

Water Ice

  1. While Saturn's rings are almost exclusively composed of water ice, new findings show the Cassini Division contains relatively more "dirt" than ice.

Continuous Line

  1. Imagine that the continuous line represents an infinite number of spaces equal in width to the short line above but continuous, such as the Cassini division. (Web site)

Gap

  1. The gap between the A and B rings is known as the Cassini division.

Large Gap

  1. The bright stripe seen within the left portion of the shadow is infrared sunlight streaming through the large gap in the rings known as the Cassini Division. (Web site)

Cassini

  1. Cassini was the first to observe four of Saturn's moons; he also discovered the Cassini Division (1675).

Orbit

  1. Its inner boundary is the Cassini Division and its sharp outer boundary is the orbit of the small moon Atlas. (Web site)

Cassini Spacecraft

  1. The Cassini spacecraft has recently found indications (small dusty rings) that even smaller moonlets may be orbiting in the Cassini Division[2].

Inner Edge

  1. The Huygens Gap is at the inner edge of the Cassini Division.

Saturn

  1. Giovanni Cassini (1625-1712, Italian) was the astronomer who first discovered the division in the rings of Saturn, today known as the Cassini division. (Web site)
  2. The Cassini division in the rings of Saturn falls at the Golden Section of the width of the ring. (Web site)
  3. He discovered four moons of Saturn and the gap in the rings of Saturn now called the Cassini division.

Mimas

  1. The Cassini Division, now known to contain faint ringlets and gaps, is the result of resonance between its particles and Mimas.

Cassini Division

  1. A third and fourth ring are visible in the Cassini Division, the big gap in Saturn's main ring system. (Web site)
  2. The Encke Gap, much smaller than the Cassini Division, is visible near the outer edge of the A ring. (Web site)
  3. Mimas is responsible for clearing the material from the Cassini Division, the gap between Saturn's two widest rings, A Ring and B Ring.
