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.

Suggestions for names of Pluto's moons

Emily Lakdawalla • February 21, 2006

I received quite a number of emails containing suggested names for Pluto's moons -- thanks! I just sent all the suggestions to Alan Stern; here they are for everybody's enjoyment.

Emily Lakdawalla • February 07, 2006

Saturn is surrounded by a crowded family of rings and moons, and two of those moons -- Epimetheus and Janus -- orbit Saturn so close together that it seems as though their different orbital speeds should make them crash into each other.

Emily Lakdawalla • January 30, 2006

It's in space, of course, and has a very, very long way to go to Pluto (nearly 50 billion kilometers). But it's finally more than 1 Astronomical Unit from the Sun.

I received a lot of email over the weekend about New Horizons. Many of them were expressing concern about how little news there has been since launch. Have no fear.

After the launch

John Spencer • January 19, 2006

We just got back from the real post-launch party, following two non-post-launch parties on the last two evenings. This was more like it.
