Saturn;s Young Rings

An article at titled “Saturn’s Young Rings” (20 December 2017) , touts a presentation at the Fall Meeting of the AGU, based on the gravitational effect of the rings measured by analyses of the Cassini probe orbits. The researchers claim that this force is not strong enough to retain the rings. Using the data they calculate that the rings are young, only 100 to 200 million years old!

Although the rings are known to be primairily water ice, modern academia has not advanced an acceptable origin of all this ice, since the current hypothesis is that Jupiter and Saturn are 90% hydrogen and 10% helium. The leading hypothesis is that two comets, or a comet and a satellite collided inside the Roche limit and the pieces ended up forming the rings. No concern is offered as to the similarity in the sizes of the ice particles or their even distribution.

Cyclic Catastrophism

The new hypothesis presented herein contends that the entire solar system we observe, and experience today, was completely reformed in the last 6,000 years – including Saturn’s rings. The most fundamental aspect of this work is based on the hypothesis that Saturn and Jupiter are solid,  highly deuterated, methane gas hydrate bodies, which comprise about 80% water, meaning that together the two giant planets comprise 300 Earth-masses of water. When small bodies like Shoemaker-Levy 9 impact Saturn they produce fusion explosions which eject surface material – some heavy elements but primarily water into space which freezes to form the rings and that this has been occurring for the last 6,000 years. Evidence for such impacts has been visible in the last few decades, in the form of ‘white spots’ >10,000 km wide, which appear suddenly at the top of the clouds and become swept completely around the planet for months at the top of Saturn’s atmosphere (Figure 1), interpreted in the current paradigm as ‘large storms‘.

In fact, thousands of these impacts triggering fusion explosions have pounded Saturn in the last 6,000 years. The impacts have also resulted in the temperature excess and the apparent diameter of the planet, due to the mass of material blasted from the surface which has remained in the atmosphere. Saturn’s total mass is only 0.3 that of Jupiter, since its composition is the same as Jupiter’s, this gives an idea of how much its atmosphere is expanded, resulting in an average density only half that of Jupiter.

Even stronger evidence for the effect of these impacts is visible in Cassini images of Saturn’s rings. These show shadows or impacts on the rings due to material recently blasted from the planet. ESA has recently revealed the true nature of the impacting bodies (67P Churymov-Gerasiemento), many millions of which have been ejected by the large fusion plume on Jupiter in this same 6,000 years. Several millions of these Jupiter family asteroids, the Trojans, are currently orbiting in the Lagrange L4 and L5 points of the Sun-Jupiter system. Many more are in eccentric orbits arcing below and above the plane of the ecliptic.

“Hurrah for positive science! Long live exact demonstration …  This is the geologist, this works with a scalpel, and this is a mathematician.  Gentlemen, to you the first honors always!  Your facts are useful, and yet they are not my dwelling, I but enter by them to an area of my dwelling.”
