Saturn Influences Jets Of Enceladus
2013-08-01 05:31:29

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The proximity of Saturn's moon Enceladus to the ringed planet can change the intensity of the jets of water ice and organic particles that shoot out from the moon, according to data from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. The findings, published in Nature, add to the growing evidence a liquid water reservoir or ocean lurks under the icy surface of the moon. The Cassini data is the first clear observation the bright plume emanating from...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It might look like just one pale blue dot among millions of other similar looking objects, but NASA's Cassini spacecraft recently captured an 'Earth-selfie' from 890 million miles away. The image captured by the Saturn orbiter is actually a look into the past as light from Earth takes 80 minutes to reach the ringed planet. "We can't see individual continents or people in this portrait of Earth, but this pale blue dot is a succinct...

[ Watch the Video: The Mystery Of The Missing Waves Of Titan ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study published in the journal Icarus attempts to answer the question of where all the waves went on Saturn's moon Titan. Surprisingly, Titan is a world full of lakes, seas, river channels, islands, rain and mud. However, one of the big differences between this moon and Earth is that Titan's liquid is not water. Titan is far too cold for liquid water, and...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA's Cassini spacecraft, currently orbiting around Saturn, will be poised to snap an image of Earth on Friday, and the space agency is asking the public to photobomb the picture. Cassini will be positioned to take an image of Earth through the rings of Saturn, and NASA is asking everyone to go outside and get in the picture. "Cassini has photographed Earth before, but this will be the first time Earthlings know in advance their...

Draco (dragon or serpent) Constellation -- Location: Northern Hemisphere; Coordinates: Right Ascension: 17h; Declination: +65; Source: Creation and dragon myths from Greek, Roman, eastern Mediterranean, Middle East, Indian and Norse cultures Two circumstances lie behind the multitude of myths associated with Draco. First, due to the precession of the Earth, Draco's star Thuban was the pole star approximately 4000 years ago. It would have seemed to ancient sky watchers that the Earth...

Cassini-Huygens Mission -- The Cassini unmanned space probe is intended to study Saturn and its moons. It was launched on October 15, 1997 and is estimated to enter Saturn's orbit on July 1, 2004. The mission is a joined NASA/ESA project. Cassini's principal objectives are to: -- determine the three-dimensional structure and dynamical behavior of the rings -- determine the composition of the satellite surfaces and the geological history of each object -- determine the nature and...

Saturn's moon Titan -- Titan is the planet Saturn's largest moon. It is larger than either of the planets Mercury or Pluto and is the second-largest moon in the solar system after Ganymede (it was originally thought to be slightly larger than Ganymede, but recent observations have shown that its thick atmosphere caused overestimation of its diameter). Titan was discovered on March 25, 1655 by the Dutch astronomer Christian Huygens, making it one of the first non-terrestrial moons to be...

The Planet Saturn -- in astronomy, 6th planet from the sun. Astronomical and Physical Characteristics of Saturn Saturn's orbit lies between those of Jupiter and Uranus; its mean distance from the sun is c.886 million mi (1.43 billion km), almost twice that of Jupiter, and its period of revolution is about 291/2 years. Saturn appears in the sky as a yellow, starlike object of the first magnitude. When viewed through a telescope, it is seen as a golden sphere, crossed by a series of...
