Eh, depends. Lots of them would burn up upon contact with our atmosphere.

Wouldn't a giant rock in the sky fly off and crash into our earth, causing massive destruction?

Wait a minute, we have a giant rock in the sky! the moon!

Jeez guy, you can think about your question first, you know?

You're seriously comparing the two when they work entirely differently?

You're one hell of a sad ignorant dumb **** .
User avatar #226 to #78 - dragemit (06/25/2013) [-]
Lots of rocks in orbit vs. 1 large rock in orbit

If you're so smart, explain why and how they work differently.

Wouldn't all the planets just fall of and crash on the sun?
Nah.
Y, tho?
Orbit.

Because nothing has EVER been knocked out of orbit.

So things have been, then? Like not artificial satellites and such but natural ones.

Maybe we'd have the technology to repel them, developed out of necessity.
User avatar #14 to #1 - playfaire (06/24/2013) [-]
The rings are made mostly of small ice particles ranging from millimeters to a few meters in size, so even if they fell out of orbit and started falling thru the atmosphere they would most likely melt before they hit the surface.
User avatar #26 to #14 - EnergizierAnon ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
Those rings are made up of dust, rock, and ice accumulated from passing comets, meteorite impacts on Saturn’s moons, and the planet’s gravity pulling material from the moons. Some of the material in the ring system are as small as grains of sand, others are larger than tall buildings, while a few are up to a kilometer across.

You need to login to view this link
distance of saturns rings

earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/OrbitsCatalog/images/orbits_schematic.png
distance of orbits

so there's about a 30,000 km gap between the satellites and the rings
I don't think it would be much of a problem except for stray rocks hitting the far away satellites, but i'm sure if the rings were there we'd figure out a solution before we sent satellites out there.
User avatar #28 to #23 - newforomador (06/24/2013) [-]
You have to factor in the fact that Saturn (120,536 kilometers diameter) is pretty decently larger then Earth (12,756 kilometer diameter). If the closest the rings would be was proportionate with where the rings are closest to Saturn (74,500 kilometers away) then Earths rings would be approximately 20,541 kilometers away if my math is correct. Which would interfere with satellites if your link is correct, and if the distances I found in google were correct.
User avatar #24 to #23 - EnergizierAnon ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
saturns rings are actually falling closer to saturn. eventually saturn won't have any rings.
User avatar #25 to #24 - EnergizierAnon ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
it would be the same if earth had rings. we'd eventually have a lot of impacts with our satellites.
#147 to #24 - ketiw (06/24/2013) [-]
How could ring fall down on saturn when they have no "slowing down" effect affecting them? Or they do have? Please explain..
User avatar #215 to #147 - EnergizierAnon ONLINE (06/25/2013) [-]
they are slower than what their orbits need. gravity is winning that fight. Imagine if the earth moved just a bit slower in our orbit. we would slowly start spiraling into the sun. its the same with saturns rings.
User avatar #13 to #12 - zerosonaku (06/24/2013) [-]
Satellites could orbit just outside of the rings orbit, Albeit we'd need more than what we've got now.

So than we will have hundreds of meteors crashing on the earth's surface causing millions to die.

But if we had rings like this we'd probably be thinking about how amazing it would look if we had a moon like we have now.
#68 to #62 - pentol (06/24/2013) [-]
are the rings of saturn smashed moons, or are they framents of a proto-moon, that will/can gravitate together and form a new moon?
User avatar #72 to #68 - Kittehh (06/24/2013) [-]
The rings on any gas planet are made up of dust, rock, ice from passing comets, meteorite impacts on the moons, and the planet’s gravity pulling material from the moons.

Just because a planet has rings doesn't mean it doesn't have a moon. Saturn has 7 moons. Neptune has 13.
User avatar #109 to #91 - souljatoy (06/24/2013) [-]
7 moons? what? Saturn has around 62! You are mistaken but you still make a point.

im pretty sure saturn have waaaay more than 7 moons, saturn has like, a million, unless im thinking of jupiter's moons
User avatar #94 to #91 - grotesquefailure (06/24/2013) [-]
I imagined this was an alternate version of Earth where the moons were replaced by the rings. I guess it just depends on your interpretation of a photoshopped image, I dunno.
User avatar #98 to #94 - roninneko ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
The content doesn't say, "If Earth had rings instead of a moon." It says, "If Earth had rings like Saturn." Saturn has rings AND moons.

Your name is very apt right now.

Go back to school.

PLEASE.

Rings are not moons. Rings are clouds of dust and rock. Moons are large asteroids or similar structures. Christ, this is grade-school **** .

The Ecuador one reminded me of a Halo.

i cant wait for them to do halo 2 anniversary!!! and yes they will because someone inside 343 stated that either before or after halo 5 there will be a halo 2 anniversary
User avatar #163 to #114 - rapterjesus (06/25/2013) [-]
if they would release the anniversary games for Windows, i would **** my pants in joy.
User avatar #229 to #163 - thefuzzywalrus (06/26/2013) [-]
they aren't going to.... actually it is a possibility but mucrosoft owns the series and they want it to remain an exclusive for its entire life so if anything they'll only keep it on xbox to make more sales. also the halo ce anniversary wasn't given its original multiplayer instead they only tied it to halo reach's... so id imagine they do the same for 5 and 2 but there will be an uproar in their fanbase over that

I was in the American school program, and I knew that.

Granted it's the South American school program, and I live in Equador, and most of our lessons are how to not die when the communist militias come to butcher us.

But such is life.

no Ecuador is a country.
the equator well I assume you know what that is.

Well I know Ecuador is a country but I think the name literally translates to equator. I may be mistaken.
