Sometimes That Corny Joke Just Writes Itself
On CNN's Science page they are reporting that the Hubble Telescope has discovered additional rings and moon around Uranus. The jokes that could be made here are very hard to resist, but I will let you add them for yourself.
The discoveries include 3 new moons and a new set of rings that are all inside of the previously established rings and moons. The 3 moons are very small with the largest being 16 miles across. The scientist quoted in the CNN article speculates that due to the unstable system that the moons and rings create, the moons will colide and destroy themselves at somepoint.
