A New Study Has Determined How The Strange Stripes Spotted On Saturn’s Moon Dione May Have Gotten There

New research on Saturn's moon Dione suggests that the stripes that have been discovered are most likely debris from Saturn's rings, other moons or passing comets.
Scientists observing Saturn's moon Dione has spotted some very strange strips on it and a new study has determined how those strips have got gotten there
As report, scientists have been able to analyze data that was captured by NASA's past Cassini mission, which concluded last year. In some of the photographs that were taken by Cassini, bright and thin stripes are visible on Dione's surface which are also found on ones that are also found on Rhea, Saturn of another moon.


However, on Dione these lines are strictly parallel and also seem to be fresh and new. They have also been found in the middle of the moon. According to the new study's co-writer Alex Patthoff, who is a geologist at the Planetary Science Institute, the orientation of the lines is completely bizarre and very different from anything else that has ever seen before, as was explained in a public statement by

It was found that the moon of Saturn had not been affected by overlapping, showing that they are relatively young in age.
To try and learn more about how these strips have been gotten on Dione, Pathoff pondered whether the surface of the moon could be acting similarly to tectonic plates on Earth with different parts jutting up against other Another theory was that perhaps there were boulders that were moving around in Dione and leaving imprints in their wake.
According to the strips on Dione has probably accumulated because of debris falling from Saturn's rings or passing comets, although Saturn's other moons Helene and Polydeuces are also implicated.
As Patthoff further explained, "The evidence has been protected in the linear virgae has influences for the orbital evolution and the effects of the saturnian system. Plus, the interaction of Dione's surface and exogenic material has implications for its habitability and provides evidence for the delivery of ingredients that may contribute the habitability of ocean worlds in general. "
The new study which demonstrates that the bizarre lines found on Saturn's moon Dione is most likely caused by debris out of sources like Saturn's rings.
