NASA image of the day: Saturn's moon Tethys. NASA said:
"Like a drop of dew hanging on a leaf, Tethys appears to be stuck to Saturn's A and F rings from this perspective in this 2014 image from the Casini mission":

cool, but looks like we have to wait to 2029 to get contact with life forms there: Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE) slated to reach the Jupiter system in 2029

79 moons last time we did birth control of Saturn. If these big planets keeps getting so many babies the solar system will get over moonlated.

Discovery of 20 new moons gives Saturn a solar system record

"the massive haul comes just over a year after astronomers announced 12 new moons orbiting Jupiter, but with the latest finds, Saturn’s retinue now surpasses Jupiter’s 79 known natural satellites."

reminds me off NASA Did the Moon Form in Natural Nuclear Explosion? (could even explain the Fermi paradox?)

A Fast Radio Burst 500 Million Light Years Away Is Repeating - Forbes Feb 11

Every 16.35 days

“One idea is that it is due to the orbital period of a binary system, such as a neutron star orbiting a young OB star. OB stars are massive and highly energetic. Neutron stars are dense and have strong magnetic fields. A close binary of the two could create a beam of high energy radio light.”

More from the original paper here:

Amiri, M., et al. “Periodic activity from a fast radio burst source.” *arXiv preprint* arXiv:2001.10275 (2020).
