@Heli Trivedi Falling around is different from a simple fall. An object "falls" around another object without having any contact with each other. That's the case in artificial satellites. Jandy Diaz · 4 years, 6 months ago

@Jandy Diaz but earth doesn't have any kind of ring around it........ Heli Trivedi · 4 years, 6 months ago

@Heli Trivedi Perhaps it's because of its distance from the sun. Saturn's rings are mostly composed of debris made of ice (based on some books that I've read) and Sun's emitted energy is not enough to melt them all. And because earth is somewhat near to the sun, the sun's energy is enough to melt these ice debris.

It's just my opinion, I don't know if it's right.:) Jandy Diaz · 4 years, 6 months ago

@Heli Trivedi they will fall on anything that has mass much much greater than their own mass. Harshit Kapur · 4 years, 6 months ago
