Flandrau Planetarium 05/09/07 Ring World Saturn- Ancient God After visiting the Flandrau Science Center and viewing Ring World in the Planetarium Theater, I had gained a better cosmic perspective of Saturn and it’s moon Titan. The show was based on the Cassini/Huygens spacecraft that reached Saturn in the summer of 2004. Two elements of the spacecraft comprise of the Cassini orbiter and the Huygens probe. We followed the Cassini spacecraft on its mission to explore Saturn and its giant rings and its mysterious moon Titan. The show began with an overview of early astronomy and astronomers. The presentation spoke of Galileo in the seventh century and his early telescope. It told us that Galileo viewed, through his telescope, and noticed that Venus went through phases. Christiaan Huygens was the next topic of discussion. He discovered Saturn’s moon Titan. He also examined Saturn’s planetary rings and discovered that those rings consisted of rocks.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
