SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Pan (moon)

Pan is the innermost named moon of Saturn. It is a small, walnut-shaped moon 35 kilometres across and 23 km wide that orbits within the Encke Gap in Saturn's A Ring. Pan is a ring is responsible for keeping the Encke Gap free of ring particles, it is sometimes described as having the appearance of a ravioli. It was discovered by Mark R. Showalter in 1990 from analysis of old Voyager 2 probe photos and received the provisional designation S/1981 S 13 because the discovery images dated back to 1981; the existence of a moon in the Encke Gap was first predicted by Jeffrey N. Cuzzi and Jeffrey D. Scargle in 1985, based on wavy edges of the gap which indicated a gravitational disturbance. In 1986 Showalter et al. inferred its mass by modeling its gravitational wake. They arrived at a precise prediction of 133,603 ± 10 km for the semi-major axis and a mass of 5–10×10−12 Saturn masses, inferred that there was only a single moon within the Encke gap; the actual semi-major axis differs by 19 km and the actual mass is 8.6×10−12 of Saturn's.

The moon was found within 1° of the predicted position. The search was undertaken by considering all Voyager 2 images and using a computer calculation to predict whether the moon would be visible under sufficiently favorable conditions in each one; every qualifying Voyager 2 image with resolution better than ~50 km/pixel shows Pan clearly. In all, it appears in eleven Voyager 2 images; the moon was named on 16 September 1991, after the mythological Pan, the god of shepherds. This is a reference to Pan's role as a shepherd moon, it is designated Saturn XVIII. The eccentricity of Pan's orbit causes its distance from Saturn to vary by ~4 km, its inclination, which would cause it to move up and down, is not distinguishable from zero with present data. The Encke Gap, within which Pan orbits, is about 325 km wide. Cassini scientists have described Pan as "walnut-shaped" owing to the equatorial ridge, similar to that on Atlas, visible in images; the ridge is due to ring material. It has been referred to by journalists as a space empanada, a form of stuffed bread or pastry, as well as a ravioli.

The Encke Gap contains a ringlet, coincident with Pan's orbit, indicating that Pan maintains the particles in horseshoe orbits. A second ringlet is periodically disrupted by Pan to how the F Ring is disturbed by Prometheus. Notes Citations Pan Profile by NASA's Solar System Exploration The Planetary Society: Pan

Margaret Sitte

Margaret Sitte is an American politician and member of the Republican Party who served as a member of the North Dakota Senate for the 35th district. Sitte served in the North Dakota House of Representatives from 2003 to 2007, coming second in the 2002 election for the two-member 35th district with 3,167 votes, ahead of Democrat Audrey Cleary, who came third with 3,081 votes. Sitte ran for the North Dakota State Senate in 2006, but was narrowly beaten by Democrat Tracy Potter, who defeated her by 2,928 votes to 2,875. Potter ran for the U. S. Senate in 2010 and Sitte was elected to succeed him, defeating Democrat Nick Archuleta by 3,451 votes to 2,343. Sitte received attention in 2013 for opposing Bill 2125, inspired by the death of Caylee Anthony, which would have required caretakers to report missing children within 48 hours. Sitte voted against it, saying: "I affectionately call this bill the'Make Mary and Joseph Felons Bill' because Jesus was missing for three days."Also in 2013, Sitte was the primary sponsor of the Human Life Amendment, Measure 1, a right to life measure that would have amended the North Dakota Constitution to say "The inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected."

The measure was defeated in the 2014 elections. In that election, Sitte lost her re-election bid to Democrat Erin Oban by 58% to 41%. Profile at Vote Smart

Austrocochlea constricta

Austrocochlea constricta, common names the southern periwinkle, common periwinkle, or ribbon monodonta, is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Trochidae, the top snails. The height of the shell varies its diameter between 22 mm and 28 mm; the thick, solid shell is imperforate. Its color is a lusterless ashen or whitish, obscurely marked with black zigzag lines and stripes, or with spiral articulated zones or with spiral stripes of black. Sometimes it is nearly unicolored; the spire is conical with an acute apex. The about five whorls are convex; the first one is eroded, the penultimate is strongly spirally tricostate. The body whorl has about seven strong carinae; the aperture is oblique. The outer and basal lips are either thick and multilirate within, or rather thin and furrowed at the places of the principal carinae; the short columella is oblique, subdentate at its base and at the insertion spreading in a strong callus upon the parietal wall. This marine species is endemic to Australia and occurs off New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia Dillwyn, L.
