Seminar on the interactions between gravitational waves and planetary rings

Originally posted on Centre for Computational Physics:
On June 10th Dr Phil Sutton presented his ongoing work on the interactions between gravitational waves and planetary rings. It was discussed that orbital resonances between objects in astrophysical systems is commonplace, with nearby moons creating clear structures in planetary rings. In Saturn’s rings the most obvious is…
