NASA's Cassini spacecraft sent back data from its first orbit and will continue to complete its mission of 20 orbits. The data from the orbits will help researchers further understand if Saturn's moons are indeed younger than previously thought.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft beams back images from the new orbit in Saturn's rings.
NASA’s Cassini probe has successfully captured stunning images of Saturn. The images, however, are quite a doozy. The photos published on NASA’s official site show multiple angles of a weird hexagon-shaped storm that is swirling around the north pole of the planet.
Cassini is running out of fuel and is near the end of its mission. But before it plunges to its death, it will first complete a series of ring dives that started last Nov. 30.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft will orbit close to Saturn's rings in order to capture detailed and high-resolution images of the rings' structure and the moonlets orbiting near the rings.
A stunning new photo by NASA's Cassini spacecraft has revealed the elaborate structure of Saturn's iconic rings. The rings of Saturn have charmed astronomers and stargazers for centuries.
Cassini's final year in observing the ringed planet Saturn and its moons has proven to be another colorful year. Recently, the spacecraft has seen the summer methane clouds on Saturn's moon Titan.
Titan has Earth-like canyons filled with liquid methane hydrocarbons instead of water.
For Cassini's last hoorah, the spacecraft will pass through an unexplored space between Saturn and its rings and will make the closest-ever observations of Saturn, providing new precise insights into the planet's inner structures.
Cassini captured four Saturn days in an amazing video showing the hexagonal odd shape on the planet's north pole and an oval-shaped storm near the northern hemisphere.
The Cassini spacecraft will end its mission on Sept. 2017, but before that, it will perform a series of orbits that will observe the space between Saturn and its rings.
NASA's Cassini probe managed to capture detailed images of sand dunes on Saturn's largest moon, Titan for the first time. The images were taken by using the radar vision of the spacecraft enabling it to peak through the cloudy haze that covers the surface of the moon.
A bright glow on Saturn's B ring was captured by the Cassini spacecraft.
A new fascinating image of the bent rings of Saturn was taken by the camera aboard the Cassini spacecraft.
