Definition: Roche Limit, sometimes referred to as the Roche Radius, is the distance within which a celestial body, held together only by its own gravity, will disintegrate due to a second celestial body's tidal forces exceeding the first body's gravitational self-attraction. Inside the limit, orbiting material will tend to disperse and form rings, while outside the limit, material will tend to coalesce (consolidate). The rings of Saturn lie inside Saturn’s Roche limit and may be the debris of a demolished moon. Named after the French astronomer who first calculated this theoretical limit in 1848. Wiki
