Some bad news for fans of Titan RADAR

Emily Lakdawalla • September 10, 2005

According to Jason Perry, the much-anticipated Titan-7 RADAR imagery across Titan's southern hemisphere may have been lost due to an error on Cassini's solid state recorder. That will be very sad if it turns out to be true.
