Cassini camera data has been released through September 30, 2007
The Cassini camera team has delivered early on the scheduled July 1 release of data to the Planetary Data System, the archive from which all researchers (and members of the public) can locate and retrieve data from nearly every NASA (and some non-NASA) missions. The camera team -- and all the other teams -- are required to deliver data on a quarterly basis, with everything delivered within nine to twelve months of its acquisition. So the release includes all data from July 1 to September 30, 2007, and that includes all the data from the close encounter with Iapetus. I have not yet had time to explore this bonanza, but I want to share with you this lovely panorama put togther by Gordan Ugarkovic.
