If Jules Verne knew about Saturn’s core, he would have written a book about sailing to the center of the ringed planet. It tursn out Saturn’s core is a hidden internal ocean that moves as the plant turns. Here’s more from Astronomy Now:
Subtle ripples in Saturn’s innermost rings indicate the planet’s core is not a compact, solid structure as some have theorised but more like a thick “soup” of ice, rock and metallic fluids extending across 60 percent of the planet’s diameter.
“We used Saturn’s rings like a giant seismograph to measure oscillations inside the planet,” said Jim Fuller, assistant professor of theoretical astrophysics at Caltech and co-author of a paper in Nature Astronomy. “This is the first time we’ve been able to seismically probe the structure of a gas giant planet, and the results were pretty surprising.”
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
