Saturn rings

Saturn has rings made up of debris. so i want to know that why after displacing anyone of the rock it comes back to its original place(as seen in wall E)!!!!!!!!!

Saturn rings was made of ice and not exactly from the explosion of former diamond and it was automatically shaped out...

my physics teacher told me that the planets are gaseous so they don't have proper spherical shape!!!!!!!! pls tell what is the relation of shape with this???????

The debris "fall" around the planet. Hope this helps.

debris fall so???????? they fall on earth also........

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.

but earth doesn't have any kind of ring around it........

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.:)

they will fall on anything that has mass much much greater than their own mass.
