ABSTRACT

The article shows how the phenomenon of superconductivity can contribute to the origin of Saturn rings. The main argument for this coming from the general physics consideration and based on the fact that Saturn has a magnetic field, and the temperature of the environment in its vicinity is low enough to think about superconductivity.
