The Cassini spacecraft was sent by NASA to give up close data on the elusive planet Saturn. The mission was a one-way trip that would take 27 years to complete, and at the end of that journey, Cassini would just crash into Satun’s atmosphere.
Spacecraft Captures Puzzling Image before Crash
This is exactly what occurred last week when right on schedule Cassini did end its mission. But not before Cassini took one more trip around the rings of Saturn and was able to capture more photos from the planet. So, did this mission uncover anything about the ringed planet? Well, it turns out that this was a mission that told quite a bit about Saturn and one thing that was discovered in the photos sent back by the doomed spacecraft is a phenomenon that has been officially named “Peggy.’
This glitch was discovered by astronomer Carl Murray back in 2013. The Professor at the Queen Mary University in, London determine that this debris found in the rings of Saturn wasn’t one of its previously discovered shepherd moons but something else that appeared to be causing a sort of wave effect in the rings of the planet. Since Murray was the one who made the discovery, he was given the honor of naming it, and he chose to name it after his mother-in-law whose name is Peggy.
The wave tentatively known as “Peggy” appears to be over a half a mile wide from what NASA has determined. So, what exactly is “Peggy” and does it still exist around Saturn? Well before Cassini made its final ultimate descent into the atmosphere it managed to again capture the elusive “Peggy” on film, as for what this could be there are theories including the fact that “Peggy” is indeed a moon that is decomposing. So, in the end, Cassini completed its mission, and with it gave NASA things to ponder such as what “Peggy is. In any case, here’s a job well done by Cassini, its mission was truly accomplished.
