Finally, Saturn became the largest Nuclear family in the solar system

Finally, Astronomical Union have confirmed the discovery of 20 more new Moons for Saturn, making it the largest parent of the solar system.

The discovery was lead by Dr. Scott.S.Sheppard if the Carnegie Institute of Science, USA back in 2004.

Though the list contained 25 moons, only 20 were observed again to confirm the discovery.
