Researchers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope recently took advantage of a rare opportunity to record Saturn when its rings are edge-on, resulting in a unique movie featuring both of the giant planet's poles. Saturn is only in this position every 15 years and this favourable orientation has allowed a sustained study of Saturn’s almost symmetric northern and southern lights.

Thank you: most informative (for me who knows little) and beautiful too (beauty is an important element to capture attention!!!). But I wonder if it is my new aspire one that is not sufficiently equipped to get the sound so as to hear the flow of the talk rather than stuttering and jumping bits that do make sense, but require more attention.
In any case thanks for the great team work you offer in order to help the public "lift up their eyes to higher topics..."
