Intro Astronomy Class 9: Titan, Uranus and Neptune Systems

In my ninth class of my Introduction to Planetary Science and Astronomy class at CSUDH, I explain Saturn's enigmatic moon Titan and then give a tour of the Uranian and Neptunian systems. The video is below. For more information about the class, see my class page,

This lecture starts with guest Scott Edgington, Cassini Deputy Project Scientist at JPL, then covers Saturn's moon Titan and the Uranian and Neptunian systems including atmospheres, interiors, rings, and moons including Triton. Recorded at California State University Dominguez Hills.

In the next class, I will cover Transneptunian Objects (TNOs) including the Pluto System, Eris, Kuiper Belt Objects, Comets, and the Oort Cloud.
