Wonderful NASA Cassini’s Images of Saturn and its Many Moons

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has arrived in Saturn’s neighborhood more that 10 years ago, it has been sending wonderful images and data about the planet which is famous for its rings and many moons. Before the spacecraft runs out of the fuel it final sweeps of the area and NASA send it into Saturn’s atmosphere to burn up in a fiery sendoff.

Until that final salute in September and as Cassini takes whatever measurements and other data it can during the time it has left, we can reflect on its most exciting discoveries of Saturn and its moons. Here are some of the most important images it has sent back to Earth.

Enceladus, a moon of Saturn

Saturn has many full sized moons orbiting it. Scientists have discovered that its massive rings have tiny moons which are known as moon-lets cutting through them as they swing around the planet. The moon-lets displace material in the rings during their orbits, with their gravity creating waves in the dust that forms the rings and creating propeller shaped gaps in the rings wherever they are. Cassini got plenty of closeups of these propellers, but arguably the most powerful of its moonlet images is the strikingly clear closeup of Daphnis, a 5-mile-long moonlet streaking through the outer edges of the planet’s rings.

After a dive between Saturn and its rings

During its journey to the outer solar system, the Cassini spacecraft has gotten up close to Saturn’s moon Enceladus including inspecting plumes that come off the moon’s surface. This shot of the plumes backlit by the sun show them shooting off Enceladus. Cassini flew through the plumes for the first time and collected data to send back to Earth around the time this picture was taken. Over time scientists have analyzed all the data from Cassini to find that Enceladus has hydrogen, which could be an energy source for certain kinds of alien life forms.

Titan is the largest moon of Saturn

When Cassini first encountered Saturn’s largest moon, it was able to capture views clearer than any equipment before it. It would learn much more about Titan over the years, but this first detailed image was where it all began. Since Cassini entered the moon’s neighborhood, it has collected data that indicates volcanic activity and teaches scientists about what it’s like on the surface.

Saturn blocks the light of the sun, its rings are illuminated from behind and shine in the darkness of space.

Cassini once made a clever move of using Saturn to block the intense light of the sun and then snapped a photo from behind the giant planet, capturing its illuminated rings in all their glory. According to NASA, it was a view scientists had never had before. And it included some familiar faces A trained eye can detect the “pale dot of Earth” above the bright main rings as well as the moon Enceladus.

Health Tips for different Blood Groups – Diet Plan

Health is a state of a person’s mind, body, spirit usually free from illness, injuries or pain. In other words, we can say that the person is healthy or has good health. Health mainly depends on the lifestyle and behaviour of the person that he/she adapts through exercise, good sound sleep, maintaining weight, personal care or hygiene, proper diet and avoiding bad habits. In fact a person’s health is his true wealth. Good Health is maintained by a proper diet which is a person’s basic need and keeps one healthier. Diet is based on nutrition of the food which a person consumes according to likes and tastes. It plays a significant role in quality of life, good health and longevity.

But What if Good Health Also Depends on Different Blood Groups?

A very interesting concept recommended by Dr.Peter D’Adamo a naturopathic physician. Humans with particular blood groups respond differently to specific types of foods they consumed. He had claimed that eat food that fit your blood groups. His assumptions of this blood groups diet plan are that blood groups are the reflection of one’s genetic structure.

This theory not only determines the eyes color, height, weight, hair but also the kind of metabolism the person has. So, the person of a particular blood group will respond best to specific kinds of diet. In other words diet plan based on blood groups could help in building good health.

Diet Plan for different Blood Groups

Blood Groups of ‘A’ – The people with blood groups of ‘A’ such as A+ and A- are recommended foods which includes wheat for good health. The wheat products such as breads, pastas, chapatis, bakery products and wheat noodles are good for this blood type.

People having Blood Groups of A can also consume green vegetables. Tea, especially green tea. Light pulses, lentils, fish in small amounts and fruits. Foods that are fresh, pure, and organic works best for various blood groups especially A. Avoid excess of heavy meats and dairy for good health. Dr. D’Adamo also prefers some exercises for blood groups of ‘A’ such as calming, centering exercise, like yoga and tai chi.

Blood Groups of ‘B’  The people with blood groups of ‘B’ (B+ & B-) should consume milk, curd, cottage cheese (paneer) and other dairy products. If they have less active lifestyle, then choose skimmed or low fat milk for balanced health.

People having Blood Groups of ‘B’ should avoid the consumption of chicken, wheat products, high glycemic foods such as rice, biscuits, semolina(sooji) and all purpose flour(maida). All the green vegetables and low sugar fruits are beneficial to health of these blood groups. Persons having Blood Groups of ‘B’ should do moderate physical exercise requiring mental balance, such as hiking, cycling, tennis and swimming.

Blood Groups of ‘O’ – Dr. D’Adamo says that blood groups of ‘O’ are the earliest human blood group. These blood groups have acidic constitutions that are more acidic than alkaline. The natural pH of the body is 7.4 and should be least acidic so as to work properly. But in their case acidic constitutions have to work harder to keep body health in balance.

So, people having these blood groups should avoid foods which produce acids upon digestion. Non vegetarian food, pickles, alcohol, fried food, dairy and excess of wheat and all purpose flour (maida). They should have all kinds of vegetables like leafy, rice, potato, Bengal gram (black channa). All kinds of lentils and fruits like melons for great health. Blood Groups O’s should do aerobics, martial arts, contact sports and running.

Blood Groups of ‘AB’ – The two blood groups of ‘AB’ group have compatibility with A as well as B blood groups. So, foods of both blood groups A and B will suit the body health. But keep a watch on the quantities of food which one is consuming. AB blood groups gains weight after their 30s. Take fewer amounts of wheat and dairy products. For this group, a combination of the exercises for blood groups A and B works best.
