Pan's Highway-Saturn's Rings

In this Pan's highway worksheet, students read about the Cassini spacecraft that discovered how Pan clears out the ring debris in the outer A-ring system of Saturn. Students use an image taken by the satellite to find the scale of the image, they determine Pan's diameter, they find the width of the Encke Gap and they find the smallest feature in the photograph.
