Interplanetary probe «Cassini» found in the rings of Saturn 60 previously unknown clumps of matter. NASA experts gave them cat names, including Fluffy (Fluffy), Garfield (Garfield), Toes (Socks) and Whiskers (Whiskers), reports Space.com.

According to the newspaper, a group of scientists deciphering images by Cassini, there were more cat people than dog people. The majority won, and fragments of traditional in an English speaking environment names for cats. Space.com explains that the new features have official names, such as Alpha Leonis Rev 9, but the cat nicknames sound much nicer.

Scientists believe that the clots were the result of constant collisions of particles inside the ring. The size of each object varies from 22 meters to nearly four kilometers.

Most likely, during the next collision of them will break, but it is possible that the fragment size may increase. Then the clot will become a full companion.

In mid-September, Cassini completed a thirteen-year study of Saturn and its moons burned up in the atmosphere of a gas giant. NASA mission noted with applause, tears and hope for a speedy return.
