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.
In the 1960s, American parents began looking to mental health professionals for child-rearing advice.  Since then, an exponential per-capita increase in child mental health professionals has matched a dramatic deterioration in child mental health.  No new therapy or drug has stopped this downward trend.

And the brain goes sideways.
