    Hi not_Fritz_Argelander,

    If Sanduleak -69 202 did not survive SN1987A how can we explain that the primary ring still holds as a ring ? If there is no more gravity to hold the ring together, why didn't it scattered away ?

    I'm asking this question because I read in an article that if Saturn would vanished, its moons and rings would scatter away in space.


    Picture of the primary ring (in pink):
