Daphnis, Moon of Saturn

Daphnis is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. It is also know by other designations, SXXXV, S/2005 S1. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 77,930,758,521,054 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 0.34. Its volume is 230.

Daphnis was discovered on 1 May 2005 by Cassini Imaging Science Team.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 0.594 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..

The Equatorial Radius of the object is 4km. The value is the radius in km of the said object at the Equator.

The Escape Velocity of the object is 6 km/h. The Escape Velocity is the speed an object needs to be travelling in order to break free from the objects gravity. The larger an object is, the more velocity (speed) is needed to break free from the object.The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 136.5, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Daphnis is 23.9 km. The surface area of Daphnis is 181.46. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.00036. The Mean orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 60161.00 km/h. The is the average distance in km of the object is from its parent 136500.00.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Daphnis orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0, it is the degree at which Daphnis orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
