New Rings and Moons Around Uranus


Recommended Posts

Dec 23, 2005

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has helped discover new rings and two small moons orbiting Uranus. The largest ring is twice the size of the planet's previously known rings, and went undiscovered until now because they're so far away from the planet. Scientists think that particles in these rings are slowly spiraling away from Uranus, so there must be some source constantly replenishing them with new material.
