Saturn

RE: Saturn
Has anyone ever calculated the total mass of the rings? Are they significant?

RE: Saturn
That is a goal of the end of mission trajectories.

Cassini will be at altitudes above Saturn's cloud tops but below the lower edge of the ring system. By having the craft above and below, so to speak, of the rings, their mass can be teased out by careful analysis of the trajectory of Cassini around Saturn.

Additionally, some pics are planned of the night side equatorial area, perhaps some streaks of light of ring detritus burning up will be seen.
That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more, by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens . . . The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. . . . it is wrong and ultimately self defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years and we must do more to stop it.

And the brain goes sideways.
