For this particular study, the researchers used century-old photographic images of Saturn and recent observations made by the Cassini spacecraft to calculate Saturn's Love number - a quantity that, among other things, describes the rigidity of a planet's tidal bulge. They also found, upon examining the motion of four tiny Saturnian moons - Telesto, Calypso, Helene and Polydeuces - that the orbits of these objects were being disturbed by the gas giant's tidal bulges.

The laser line sensor is said to increase the data density or amount of profile information to detect small bulges or depressions that might be missed by single point sensors.
At high velocity the central portion of the bullet bulges, and the petals come to rest on that bulge, which prevents them from breaking off and provides increased frontal diameter.
