There's a race happening in our solar system, but it has nothing to do with gravitational mechanics or velocity. Astronomers who study the gas giant planets of Saturn and Jupiter are in a close competition to see who can discover more moons. At this point, ringed Saturn is in the lead — but exactly how many moons does Saturn have? And how does that compare to massive Jupiter's count?
Currently, Saturn has 53 confirmed moons — this is the same number of confirmed moons as Jupiter. But Saturn is currently winning the gas giant moon race thanks to the 29 provisional moons that astronomers have discovered over the past few decades. (Jupiter has 26 provisional moons, currently.) A provisional moon is one that astronomers have discovered but is still awaiting additional observations to be confirmed.
Including provisional moons, Saturn has 82 total possible moons, while Jupiter has 79. Gas giants like these planets are so large and have such strong gravitational fields, they're able to attract far more satellites than a planet, like say, Earth, with its one moon. And these numbers of moons will likely change in the future as astronomers continue observing Saturn and Jupiter and the many bodies that orbit them both. Jupiter may even overtake Saturn at some point in the future.
