According to American astronomers, Saturn has overtaken Jupiter, the most moon-matter planet.

Researchers have discovered 20 new moons that revolve around the planet and thus the number has increased to 82. While 79 moon revolves around Jupiter.

The new satellites were discovered with the help of a Subaru telescope in Hawaii.

These new satellites orbiting around Saturn have a diameter of 5 kilometers. Of these, 17 satellites orbit the opposite side of Saturn.

In the language of science, it is called retrograde. The other three satellites are spinning in the direction of Saturn.

Two of these three satellites complete one orbit of Saturn in two years.

Long distance retrograde satellites and one in three satellites take three years to orbit their orbit.

According to Dr. Scott Shepherd, who is affiliated with the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington DC and who led the search, "The orbits of these satellites can be traced back to their origins, as well as the conditions that occurred during Saturn's creation. That can be detected. "

Dr Shepherd told  that Jupiter has been considered the most lunar planet since the late 1990's.

These moons appear in three different groups and are classified according to the orientation of the planet's orbit.

Scientists believe that the Retrograde and the Pro-grade satellite are made up of three large objects. These big bodies collided with each other, maybe they were different moons or collided with a smaller planet.

One of the newly discovered satellites, the Retrograde satellite, is the most distant orbiting Saturn.

"These moons are in orbit of Saturn and are far away, so we do not believe that they will be made of the same planet. We think that these satellites would have come in Saturn's gravity later." If an asteroid is passing through, you cannot bring it into your orbit today because you cannot dissipate its energy. "

However, when Saturn was in the solar system during construction, a dust cloud of dust and gas would have formed around it.

Because of this, it would disperse the energy of the objects passing through it. But in most cases, these objects have started to spin around the planet and become part of it.

Shefford says, "We think that these bodies must have been faced with gas and dust. These were asteroids or bodies that were passing through."

"Most of the bodies revolved around the planet and contributed to the creation of the planet itself. But we understand that these bodies must have started circling when the gas and dust had started to disintegrate. So they circled instead of falling on the planet. We put it. We think this is the last remnant of what Saturn created. "

For this research, a powerful computer system was used for the analysis of complex data between 2004 and 2007 with the help of Subaru Telescope.

These data were matched with older data to identify potential satellites.

According to Dr. Shefford, "We thought they were Saturn's moons, but we didn't know the whole orbit to make sure."

"With this new computer system, I was able to ensure these classes of these 20 new bodies."

Researchers also included David Zewitt of the University of California at Los Angeles and John Kleina of the University of Hawaii.

Dr. Shefford said that there may be more moons circling around Saturn. But astronomers say that more telescopes will be needed to find them. Telescopes that can identify objects of a kilometer diameter.

The team of researchers has started the competition to name these new moons. These are to be named on the basis of their classification.
