A team of astronomers has discovered that the icy moon of Saturn has an atmosphere.This is a very thin layer, but it is present on Dione. This discovery was made recently by the Cassini a space probe.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft captures Images and sounds of big Saturn storm. So scientists analyzing data from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft now have the first-ever, up-close details of a Saturn storm that is approximately 6,200 miles (10,000 kilometers) wide, nearly as wide as Earth, and has a tail of white clouds that encircles all of Saturn.
With the help NASA’s Cassini spacecraft scientists has discovered that the water geysers erupting from Enceladus contain a significant amount of salt, wich is enough to suggest the presence of a subterranean sea. Saturn’s moon Enceladus, orbiting a planet about 891 million miles (1.4 billion km) from the sun, is cold and frigid on its surface.
On June 18, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft flew within 4,330 miles (6,968 kilometers) of Helene’s surface. It was the second closest approach to Helene of the entire mission.Cassini passed from Helene’s night side to the moon’s sunlit side.NASA’s Cassini spacecraft’s first flight to Helene took place on March 10, 2010, when Cassini flew within 1,131 miles (1,820 kilometers) of the moon.
Operation of NASA’s Cassini spacecraft suspended on Tuesday, June 14, 2011, after a series of voltage shifts on the spacecraft.The instrument has additional capacitors in the power lines for noise reduction. Engineers worried that one or more of these capacitors may have short-circuited, which would cause the voltage to shift and explain the observed changes
With the help new data by NASAs Cassini spacecraft researchers think that until current forms of life in Earth, there was the other life
Cassini spacecraft and a European Southern Observatory ground based telescope take off the image of a powerful spring storm in Saturn
Cassini has discovered an electrical connection between Saturn and its icy moon Enceladus
With the help of the Cassini spacecraft, Nasa has received new data about that the surface of Titan, Saturn’s moon, was formed under the influence of weather and outside influences, such as meteor shower, and not as a result of volcanic activity.
