Publications on the orbital migration of moonlets in Saturn’s rings

My research group published several papers on Saturn’s rings last week. I’m an author on two of them:

This is a video of one of the simulations (EQ40050DT, to be precise). Make sure you watch it in HD if possible.

It shows a three dimensional simulation of a small moonlet which is embedded in the rings. Due to collisions and gravitational interactions with ring particles, it will eventually undergo a random walk.
