NEW YORK CITY - A team of the world's leading space scientists have just disproved the commonly held belief that the planet Saturn has a ring around it.

Team leader Dr. Heinrich Von Heinrich stated that for decades everyone has believed that Saturn was the planet with the ring, but recent closeups taken with the most advanced Japanese camera on the market now disprove that.

Dr. Von Heinrich did say that one of the planets does have a ring and that planet is Mercury.

He noted that the ring around Mercury is not noticeable to the naked eye but when viewed through the Fukidaka-500 Camera, one can clearly see a raw umber colored ring around Mercury.

Dr. Heinrich stated that his team is still investigating but it appears that the ring is made up of a type of charcoal briquette substance that seems to glow when it is hit by the sunlight.
