Researcher shows how elliptical craters could shed light on age of Saturn’s moons
A new SwRI study describes how unique populations of craters on two of Saturn’s moons could help indicate the satellites’ age and the conditions of their formation. Using data from NASA’s Cassini mission, SwRI postdoctoral researcher Dr. Sierra Ferguson surveyed elliptical craters on Saturn’s moons Tethys and Dione for this study, which was co-authored by SwRI Principal Scientist Dr. Alyssa Rhoden, Lead Scientist Dr. Michelle Kirchoff and Lead Analyst Dr. Julien Salmon.
