Organic dust was found causing massive storms in Saturn's largest moon Titan. The findings of this recent study sheds more light on the geologic and atmospheric cycles of the Earth-like moon.
Cassini captured swarms of bright methane clouds on the surface of Saturn's moon Titan. Titan is one of the most significant Saturn moons since it is believed that it may possess the right chemistry for life.
NASA Cassini spotted bands of bright lights across the surface of Titan. The lights are apparently methane clouds that are rarely seen on the surface of the moon.
The beginning of the end of the great Cassini.
Cassini will continue to send data as it plunges to Saturn before burning up and crashing into the planet's surface.
Scientists have discovered that Saturn's moon Titan actually has very durable sands. It appears not only is its seas filled with hydrocarbons, but Titan's sands are also very electrically-charged.
Sands in the surface of Saturn's largest moon Titan could be electrically charged.
Saturn is one of the most beautiful planets in the Solar System. Scientists, astronomers and space fans have admired it for the beauty of its rings. However, it appears more magic is happening in its moons.
Cassini's observation led to a better understanding of Saturn's icy moon, Enceladus. The moon hosts a global salty ocean.
It can be remembered that the Cassini probe is currently doing a good job of studying Saturn for us. The beautiful planet is just site of a next big expedition, however, as a new spacecraft will be on the lookout for alien life forms.
Dubbed as Cassini's Ring-Grazing Orbits, Cassini will dive through the outer edge of Saturn's rings 20 times, once every seven days, from November 30 to April 22 next year.
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.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft is currently spending its last year on its mission to observe the ringed planet Saturn. Surprisingly, a comparison of old and new photographs of Saturn's North Pole revealed its changing colors.
