+ - Rings Discovered Around Moon for First Time->

Submitted by
Riding with Robots
Riding with Robots writes "Turns out that one of the Ringed Planet's moons has rings of its own. The robotic spacecraft Cassini at Saturn has discovered that the icy moon Rhea is orbited by an extensive debris field and at least one ring, the first such system found. "Many years ago we thought Saturn was the only planet with rings," said one mission scientist. "Now we may have a moon of Saturn that is a miniature version of its even more elaborately decorated parent.""
