Saturn's rings

Saturn's rings are made of chunks of ice, orbiting around the planet.

The gaps are made by the gravity of Saturn's moons pulling on the ring fragments.



To see how thin the rings really are, this picture of Saturn shows the rings edge-on, with Saturn's biggest moon Titan.



Many pictures of Saturn and its moons have been sent back to Earth by the Cassini probe.
