Latest Titan Saturn System Mission Stories
One can only assume that NASA is tiring of building orbiters and rovers, because one of their newest projects is a new, unmanned submarine designed to explore the liquid hydrocarbon seas of Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, in a future mission.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft is monitoring the evolution of a mysterious feature in a large hydrocarbon sea on Saturn's moon Titan. The feature covers an area of about 100 square miles (260 square kilometers) in Ligeia Mare, one of the largest seas on Titan.
WASHINGTON, July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scientists analyzing data from NASA's Cassini mission have firm evidence the ocean inside Saturn's largest moon, Titan, might be as salty
As NASA’s Cassini spacecraft zooms toward Saturn’s smoggy moon Titan for a targeted flyby on June 18, mission scientists are excitedly hoping to repeat a scientific tour de force that will provide valuable new insights into the nature of the moon's surface and atmosphere.
New radar measurements of Ligeia Mare offers planetary scientists insights into the weather patterns and landscape composition of Saturn's largest moon Titan. The measurements were made in 2013 by the Cassini orbiter...
On Saturn’s largest moon Titan it has long been known that the surface has liquid oceans. However, the movements of these liquid hydrocarbon seas have eluded prying eyes for years.
On March 6, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft will swoop down within 933 miles (1,500 kilometers) of Titan to conduct its 100th flyby of the Saturn moon.
Thanks to NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, astronomers are gaining new insights into Saturn’s moon Titan, particularly when it comes to its hydrocarbon lakes and seas.
The first global topographical map of Saturn’s moon Titan was created by scientists at the Cassini-Huygens mission. The map, published as part of a paper in the journal Icarus, will give researchers a valuable tool for learning more about one of the most Earth-like and interesting worlds in the solar system.
