SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact. Also measured in watts, where 1 watt = 1 x 107 erg s-1. Around 1.200.000 images were taken aboard the ISS (date 20/02/2014). So from Titan, the rings would appear edge-on (in the image here, the rings are very nearly edge-on and you can see Titan behind them, as well as the tiny moon Epimetheus). Science departments and institutions are populated with individuals from various cultures and backgrounds, a higher percentage of women, and in many cases, up to four generations in the same workplace.

These missions are designed to study astronomical objects through their emission of x-rays and gamma rays. Most of the mass of the solar system is concentrated in the Sun, with its 1.99 × 1033 grams. Professional interest in this area started with radio astronomers such as Frank Drake, and several programs of serious listening for radio transmissions from other civilizations have been carried out since the 1960's.
