Cassini RADAR: Another Flyby, Another Completely Different View of Titan

Emily Lakdawalla • May 23, 2006

OK, I finally got a story written about the latest and greatest of the Cassini RADAR data based upon a conversation I had with with Ralph Lorenz late last week.

Cassini RADAR images of the surface of Titan

Emily Lakdawalla • May 19, 2006

Since the last Titan flyby on April 30, the Cassini RADAR team has been releasing quite a large number of pieces of the swath to the Web.

A play-by-play of the Cassini scare on Mayday

Emily Lakdawalla • May 10, 2006

Last week's Cassini Significant Events Report included a detailed play-by-play of the frightening morning of Mayday. I thought it was a very interesting read on how a mission deals with an "anomaly."

OPAG, Day 1: Cassini and Juno status

Emily Lakdawalla • May 05, 2006

The Outer Planets Assessment Group opened with the status of two of the three actual outer planets missions, Cassini and Juno.

How much data has Cassini returned to Earth?

Emily Lakdawalla • April 28, 2006

Since January 1, 2004—the beginning of the Saturn phase of the mission—Cassini has radioed almost 139 Gigabytes of science data to Earth.

Updated Cassini tour table

Emily Lakdawalla • March 30, 2006

Cassini planner Dave Seal gave me a newly updated list of times and dates for Cassini's ongoing tour of the Saturn system, so I went through and compared my table to his and made updates to flyby distances.

LPSC: Wednesday afternoon: Cassini at Enceladus

Emily Lakdawalla • March 17, 2006

So after those two rover talks I skipped over to the other large room to listen to what the Cassini science teams had to say about Enceladus.

LPSC, Wednesday morning: Titan

Emily Lakdawalla • March 15, 2006

This morning at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference began with Titan, and then later in the morning I had to choose between skipping Titan and going over to rover sessions, or staying with Titan. I elected to stay with Titan.

The hubbub about Enceladus

Emily Lakdawalla • March 09, 2006

I just posted a very brief story about all of the press releases that have been whizzing around today about the possibility of liquid water on Enceladus.

Cassini is wrapping up another Titan flyby

Emily Lakdawalla • February 27, 2006

This one is "T-11," the twelfth Titan flyby; I prefer to keep track of which orbit Cassini is on, because that gives you one numbering system for all of Cassini's flybys, so that would make this the Rev 21 Titan flyby.
