JD: However now they’re reporting 20 new moons that are found around Saturn. Why just found? I mean what has taken so long? Is it our capability of seeing into space or what is it?

DD: Well Jimmy of course a moon is an object that circles the planet and the planet circles the sun. And new moons that’s an active area of research. Each year we come up with new telescopes with higher resolution and then we find smaller moons that we just couldn’t see them before. These new ones are not all that large maybe just a couple of miles in size and they just weren’t detected earlier.
