Sample text

Unfortunately, no other satellites were found close enough to the other rings to explain their narrow widths. This could mean that shepherding satellites around the other rings were just too small to be detected or that some other mechanism was keeping them narrow. On the outbound leg of the Voyager encounter more than 200 high-phase angle ring images were taken to determine the ring's forward-scattering properties. Virtually all of these images were completely black because the rings contained less dust than predicted.

The IPP was only able to detect the densest portion of the F ring, but the data indicated that it had a double-ring structure [23]. Pioneer Saturn also con®rmed the existence of Saturn's E ring. Outside of the main ring system, Pioneer Saturn also observed a very thin ring, now known as the G ring [24]. Alone, the IPP data were not that conclusive, but combined with the spacecraft's asteroid±meteoroid detector sensor, positive identi®cation of the structure was con®rmed. The ®rst images of the G ring would have to wait for another spacecraft that would have far superior instruments to the ones onboard Pioneer.

Scienti®c literature indicates that the ``large number of small satellites'' hypothesis was ®rst proposed by the French poet Jean Chapelain (1595±1674) in 1660 [14]. Given a choice between the vapor-cloud and the smallsatellite models, most astronomers chose the small satellite model as their favorite. In 1664 Giuseppe Campani (1635±1715) made an etching of Saturn with an interesting di€erence from those made by his predecessors and contemporaries. Campani's etching had a bright inner ring with a dimmer outer ring [15].
