News flash: Lakes at Titan's south pole, too, on top of the land of lakes in the north

Lakes have been spotted near the south pole of Titan before, in this image by the ISS team, which was considered compelling but not conclusive at the time.

Europlanet: RADAR views of Titanian Geology

Doug Ellison • August 24, 2007

"What plays in Potsdam stays in Potsdam" - that's how Ralph described a problem I mentioned over at UMSF where I explained I couldn't combine the audio of my talk with the MOV of the slides because you're not allowed to record presentations. It's "law of the stag" for conferences. So, in the spirit of the law, here's an overview of Ralph's excellent overview of Titanian geology as seen by various RADAR passes.

Dione's south pole

Emily Lakdawalla • April 09, 2007

Cassini got a nice "Voyager-class" view of Saturn's moon Dione yesterday, passing about 250,000 kilometers from the moon's south pole.

Enceladus is a drag on Saturn's radio emissions

Emily Lakdawalla • March 22, 2007

What should arrive in my inbox today but a press release from the Cassini RPWS and magnetometer teams saying, in part, "the little moon Enceladus is weighing down giant Saturn's magnetic field so much that the field is rotating slower than the planet."

LPSC: Tuesday: Volcanism and tectonism on Saturn's satellites

Anne Verbiscer • March 14, 2007

I received this report on the Tuesday afternoon special session on volcanism and tectonism on Saturn's satellites from Anne Verbiscer, an astronomer from the University of Virginia who I first met at the Division of Planetary Sciences meeting in 2005.
