Latest Cassini–Huygens timeline Stories
We have sent a man to the moon, rovers to Mars and two Voyager missions into the great unknown reaches of space. Perhaps, it's time to land a boat on Titan.
By studying photographs of Saturn's moon Titan, researchers have discovered that the satellite's river networks caused little erosion in some areas.
NASA’s Cassini satellite, which has been visiting Saturn now for eight years, caught a rare daytime lightning strike in a massive storm that has been plaguing the northern hemisphere of the distant ringed-planet for most of 2011.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft is flying high amongst the rings of Saturn for the first time in nearly two years.
The Cassini plasma spectrometer instrument (CAPS) aboard NASA's Cassini spacecraft was turned off between Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2, when a circuit breaker tripped off after the instrument experienced some unexpected voltage shifts.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft made its closest approach to Saturn's tiny moon Methone as part of a trajectory that will take it on a close flyby of another of Saturn's moons, Titan.
Shortly after passing Enceladus, Cassini had a non-targeted encounter of Dione. At closest approach, the spacecraft flew within about 5,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) of the moon.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft will be flying within about 46 miles (74 kilometers) of Saturn's moon Enceladus on Wednesday, May 2, aiming primarily to learn more about the moon's internal structure.
Scientists studying images from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft have found evidence of massive snowballs dragging glittering trails from one of Saturn’s rings.
Saturn's moon Phoebe -- Phoebe is the outermost of Saturn's known moons. Phoebe is almost 4 times more distant from Saturn than its nearest neighbor (Iapetus). It was discovered by William Henry Pickering in 1898. Most of Saturn's moons have very bright surfaces, but Phoebe's albedo is very low (.06), as dark as lampblack. All of Saturn's moons except for Phoebe and Iapetus orbit very nearly in the plane of Saturn's equator. Phoebe's orbit is retrograde, inclined almost 175, and is...
