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.
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.
In our solar system, an extra giant planet, or possibly two, might once have accompanied Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus.
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.
According to new study though the dwarf planet Eris on the edge of the solar system is much denser than Pluto, the two frigid worlds are nearly exactly the same size.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft successfully completed its October 1 flyby of Saturn’s moon Enceladus and its jets of water vapor and ice.
In June, the European Space Agency announced that its Herschel Space Observatory had found a huge donut-shaped cloud, or torus, of water vapor created by Enceladus encircling Saturn.
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.
