Saturn's F Ring September 08, 2014
Moonlets Created and Destroyed in a Ring of Saturn
There is an ongoing drama in the Saturnian ring system that causes small moons to be born and then destroyed on time scales that are but an eyeblink in the history of the solar system. SETI Institute scientists Robert French and Mark Showalter have examined photos made by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft of Saturn’s F ring, and compared them to 30 year-old pictures made by the Voyager mission. They think they understand why the photos seem so different: There is a never-ending process that both produces and destroys small moons.

How Can We Find Tiny Particles In Exoplanet Atmospheres?
Hard though it may be to believe, SETI Institute scientist Adrian Brown has worked out a scheme for finding particles ten times smaller than the width of a human hair, even at many light-years distance. They can do this by observing a blue tint in the light from far-off objects.
