Meteor Shower Tonight

Meteor Shower Tonight - The rings of Saturn might have arisen after a species of spatial striptease. According to a study published today in the digital edition of Nature, the circles of ice that dance concerning the planet are the rests of an ancient frozen moon that was losing its crust as it was approaching the planet.

The system of rings is only in Saturn. Its origin is a mystery, since nobody has managed to explain why the million pieces of ice that form them are even composed of water in 95 %, an unusual purity.

Two domineering theories do not manage to explain in detail how there formed these discs, which together would form a satellite of approximately 500 kilometers of diameter, as tell Aurélien Crida and Sébastien Charnoz, astronomers of the National Center of Scientific Investigation of France.

The first hypothesis supports that the discs of ice are rests of an ancient moon that could burst million years ago. Saturn has 61 lunas, between them Titan, which has proper ambience. The second option would be that the rings are debris of the formation of the proper planet.

Now, a new theory enriches the first hypothesis. Its authoress is Robin Canup, an astrophysics of Southwest Research Institute (the USA) that there has developed a new computer model capable of explaining how the rings formed.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
