Hi there!

My name is Asif Khan and I am an amateur astronomer and independent researcher living in India. I love to do R&D in my free time. My favorite areas of research are Superconductivity, Nuclear Sciences, Quantum Mechanics, Cosmology and everything else what interests me. Photography, Travelling, Reading and Gardening are some of my special interests.

As a professional, I work as a Project Manager in a BPO. I am Management Representative and CISO for my organization and handling its ISO and other compliance requirements as well.

My site is for something about to share my work and knowledge (not restricted to pure science!) with rest of the World. Hope you will find some useful information here . Any comments or feedback will be appreciated!.

You can contact me for any further communication.

Saturn Rings: Waves and Small Particles in Ring A
This simulated image was constructed from the measured optical depth profiles of the Cassini Division and ring A. It depicts the observed structure at about 10 kilometers (6 miles) in resolution. The image shows the same ring A region depicted in a similar image (PIA07874), using a different color scheme to enhance the view of a remarkable array of over 40 wavy features called "density waves" uncovered in the May 3 radio occultation throughout ring A.
