Images snapped by NASA's Cassini spacecraft show that Saturn's moon, Phoebe, is not an asteroid but a 4.5-billion-year-old primordial body from the solar system's outer reaches.

High-definition photographs as well as spectrographic and thermal images taken during Cassini's June 11 fly-by revealed that Phoebe likely is made up of ice, rock and carbon compounds similar to those seen in Pluto and Neptune's moon, Triton.

Wow! Looks like this Phoebe contains alot of information from the beginning our solar system. This discovery is all well and good. I am glad that through all the "stuff" that is happening here on Earth, we have people focused on increasing our knowledge of our universe.

It has got to be useful someday.

In that distance from inner solar system it would be much propable that these small moons are KBOs hijacked by gravity.

we should keep studying it it could help explain some of our solar systems mysteries since it is so old and also if its not a comet it has to be just a small body r mass that was pulled toward Saturn because it was so small
