Saturn is the second largest planet in the Solar System in terms of size. It has a bright ring composed of icy and rocky particles. Since it is very far away from the Sun, it has an orbital period of about 29.5 years. An astronomical phenomenon called the Opposition of Saturn will occur once about every 378 days.
In early June this year, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) announced that they had recently discovered more than 20 kinds of amino acids in the soil samples brought back to Earth in 2020 by "Hayabusa2" from the asteroid "Ryugu", and is the first evidence of amino acids outside Earth. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and the essential ingredients of life. Although meteorite samples were found on Earth that contained amino acids, it is uncertain whether this was the result of contamination by Earth-based materials. This discovery is undoubtedly an important milestone for scientific research on the origins of life.
