Scientists discover the cause of the mysterious vibrations of the legendary scarred moon

A new analysis conducted by a scientific team for one of the small moons, which is often described as the mysterious moon because of the presence of a single scar on it and its vibrations, revealed the source of these.

Scientists have finally reached a solution to one of the mysterious puzzles of one of the moons of Saturn, where researchers have long observed strange vibrations caused by the moon, which angered scientists. It is clear, which some scientists have likened to “the escape of death” in the Star Wars series, and its name is derived from the Greek myth “Mimas”, son of “Gaya.” The researchers concluded, according to the study published in the scientific journal “Icarus”, that the Mimas moon emits these vibrations Because there is a liquid ocean on its surface. If these predictions are correct, the moon will join the list of moons in our solar system, in which scientists expect the existence of worlds from the inner oceans. And geophysicist, Alyssa Roden, of the Southwest Research Institute, indicated that scientists believed At first, this moon is a rigid mass because its surface is full of strange and severe craters. But it turned out that the surface of Mimas was “deceiving scientists”, according to the article published in the “sciencealert” journal, and the presence of an inner ocean inside it may expand the scope of the search for a world Possible in other planets that may contain Scientists believe that geological activity in the depths of these moons, such as Mimas, occurs due to the tidal process resulting from gravitational interactions with other planets, where enough heat is generated in the oceans to keep the water liquid below the freezing surface. But the surface of the planet raised doubts, as He indicates that it is solid. As for the signals picked up by the Saturn probe, this caused a problem that troubled scientists, as it monitored a “physical vibration” on the surface of the moon, as these vibrations are not issued by a solid planet. The vibration of the moon indicates that; Either it has a moving core, or a liquid ocean, which prevents the core of the planet from being firmly attached to its surroundings, which causes movement. Since the diameter of Mimas does not exceed 396 km, this is a relatively thick icy crust compared to the size of the moon. The models also indicate that, in addition to the liquid ocean, Mimas also has a heterogeneous core, which contradicts previous models established for the evolution of the planet. She adds: “Evaluating Mimas as a moon with an ocean would measure its formation and evolution models. This will help us better understand Saturn’s rings and medium-sized moons as well as the proliferation of oceanic moons (which have an inner ocean), potentially habitable, especially in Uranus, which is an essential goal for continuing research.”

Scientists have finally solved one of the mysterious puzzles of one of the moons of Saturn. For a long time, researchers have monitored strange vibrations caused by the moon, which angered scientists.

Some scientists call the Mimas moon “the scar” because of the presence of a very large crater on it, which appears clearly, which some scientists likened to “the escape of death” in the Star Wars series, and its name is derived from the Greek legend “Mimas” Ibn Gaia”.
