The Electric Sands Of A Misty Moisty Moon Of Saturn

The Electric Sands Of A Misty Moisty Moon Of Saturn

The outer Solar System is enshrouded in the perpetual semi-darkness that exists far from the good light and warmth of our Sun. Here, in this chilly, shadowy outer kingdom, a quartet of gaseous, big, majestic planets reign supreme--Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune--all circled by most of the various moons inhabiting our Sun's household. Saturn is probably essentially the most stunning planet in our Solar System, surrounded by its fascinating, fabulous rings composed of sparkling frozen icy bits, for which it has lengthy been famous. Experiments led by planetary scientists on the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta recommend that the particles that coat the floor of Titan are "electrically charged". When the winds of Titan roar at speeds of nearly 15 miles per hour, Titan's non-silicate grains get kicked upwards, after which begin to do a wild hopping dance in a motion that's termed saltation. Because the tiny grains bump into each other, they turn out to be frictionally charged, in a fashion that has been likened to the best way a balloon being swept against your hair turns into frictionally charged.

The grains clump together in a means that has never been noticed for sand dune grains on Earth--the electrically charged grains of sand on Titan become resistant to further movement. The sand grains can
