" 'To know, is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.'

For this observation, I think that we should point Cassini to image Saturn's F ring, which is our Target number two. Because of saturns widen rings, it seems different from other planets. It has beautiful and clean ring. Because of its beautifulness, it said for Saturn that, Saturn's ring spread out like a widen saucer plane and it's so slim that if one can see constantly, it is disappeared.

'There is war on to save planet, but search new planet to make life being happy'

If we want to do a progress, we have to search more about F ring.

Beautiful, glamorous and mysterious, Saturn's rings are spread over hundreds of thousands of kilometers, yet they are extremely thin -- perhaps only 10 meters thick.

Named alphabetically in order of their discovery, the order of the main rings outward from Saturn is D, C, B, A, F, G and E.
Scientists still aren't sure exactly how old the rings are. But, 'searching reason it is the science.'

My favorite is the F ring, a very thin and faint ring discovered in 1979 by NASA's Pioneer 11 spacecraft.
The F ring is kept thin and narrow by two "shepherd" moons, Prometheus and Pandora. These moons orbit on either side of the F ring and keep it from diffusing into space. They are like two sheep dogs that keep their herd of sheep from wandering off.

One of these moons creates large snowballs as it plows through the F ring, and these snowballs puncture the ring as they tumble around Saturn. There are some estimates that five hundred of these snowballs are cutting in and out of the F ring's orbit, making it one of the most dynamic places in the Saturn system.

Every observation of the F ring tells us something new, and that's why I choose Target two.

When you get up as close as Cassini is, you can see that there are really many different rings of varying sizes and compositions. Scientists have named these rings "A" through "G."

The orbiter's up-close perspective has led to new discoveries about Saturn's dynamic atmosphere and its internal structure and its f ring. Because, 'GREATEST DISCOVERY OF THE WORLD, WHICH WILL CHANGE THINKING OF MANKIND.'

Occultations can provide a broad understanding of ring structure, thickness, information on the shapes and sizes of the particles in the rings and how they interact.

Lastly, I would like to say, 'The whole science is nothing more than a refine merit of everyday's thinking.' "
