NASA Saturn-studying Cassini probe has delivered a photographic holiday package. Two newly released Cassini images show three of Saturn’s frigid moons hanging in space like gaudy cosmic ornaments, girded by the massive planet’s magnificent rings.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft obtained this unprocessed image on December 12, 2011. The camera was pointing toward Saturn’s moon Dione from approximately 48,236 miles (77,682 kilometers) away.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft will be making its closest swoop over the surface of Saturn’s moon Dione and scrutinizing the atmosphere of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon.
Scientists reported new details about the Enceladus icy moon of the Saturn planet, and revealed images of the bright and shimmering surface of it taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft
New images from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft chronicle the birth and evolution of the colossal storm that ravaged the northern face of Saturn for nearly a year.
With the help NASA’s Cassini spacecraft will be possible to acquire the first detailed radar images of Saturn’s moon Enceladus during a flyby on Sunday, November 6.
In a new study of Saturn’s icy moon, researchers found that snow falls on Enceladus, but at an extremely slow and steady pace by Earth standards less than a thousandth of a millimeter per year.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft successfully completed its October 1 flyby of Saturn’s moon Enceladus and its jets of water vapor and ice.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera captured five of Saturn’s moons in one image, poised along the planet’s rings on July 29, 2011. Five moons are Janus, Pandora, Enceladus, Mimas and Rhea.
