Earth with rings



Roy has sent me a nice email sharing his latest animation for Youtube. It features some research into what would an Earth's ring system look like.

The surface views in the video look good and everything seem to be well researched.

Regarding simulation, imagine a space station located on the rings... perhaps to harvest some water! It would be a nice activity to try to simulate a space shuttle flight from the ISS to the ring station and back. Perhaps I'll do it for Orbiter some day!
