HOUSTON - NASA spokesperson Trent Timmelfarb has just made the scientific news media aware of a very interesting discovery.
According to satellite photos that were taken this past week, the planet Saturn, which is the sixth planet from the sun, has a definite squirrel population.
Timmelfarb told the news media that the photos were so precise that several actually showed some of the squirrels holding nuts in their mouths as they scampered about the planet.
It was noted that Saturn is made up of 3.25 percent helium which explains the sound recordings in which the squirrels actually sound like the famed Alvin and The Chipmunks; Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.
SIDENOTE: Most people do not know that Saturn was named after the Roman god of vehicles; Saturno.
