NASA's Cassini spacecraft successfully completed its 26-hour gravity observation at Saturn's moon Enceladus this week.
With the help of amateur astronomers, the composite infrared spectrometer instrument aboard NASA's Cassini spacecraft has taken its first look at a massive blizzard in Saturn's atmosphere.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has captured images of lightning on Saturn. The images have allowed scientists to create the first movie showing lightning flashing on another planet.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft completed its double flyby this week, swinging by Saturn's moons Titan and Dione with no maneuver in between.
In a special double flyby early next week, NASA's Cassini spacecraft will visit Saturn's moons Titan and Dione within a period of about a day and a half, with no maneuvers in between.
From Earth, Saturn may look like a peaceful orb, but NASA's Cassini spacecraft has revealed a rough and tumble roller derby among the gas giant's rings.
By precisely tracking NASA's Cassini spacecraft on its low swoops over Saturn's moon Titan, scientists have determined the distribution of materials in the moon's interior.
Cassini's closest-ever flyby of Saturn's moon Rhea went quite smoothly and teams are busy checking out their data.
Planetary scientists, who have been puzzling for years over the surface features on Saturn's moon Titan, have now found some recognizable analogies to a type of terrain on Earth known as karst topography.
Here in Cassini-land, we are really excited about Tuesday’s Rhea flyby! This will be the mission’s second targeted flyby of the moon in the mission, so it’s sometimes referred to as R-2 or Rhea-2.
Newly released images from Cassini's November swoop over Saturn's icy moon Enceladus reveal a forest of new jets spraying from prominent fractures crossing the south polar region.
Like the battered white whale Moby Dick taunting Captain Ahab, Saturn's moon Prometheus surges toward the viewer in a 3-D image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
Blazing through its closest pass of the Saturnian moon Mimas on Feb. 13, Cassini sent back striking close-ups of the Death Star-like moon and the enormous crater scarring its surface.
On Feb. 13, 2010, NASA's Cassini spacecraft will make its closest examination yet of Mimas, Saturn's eyeball-shaped moon that has also been likened to the Death Star of "Star Wars."
Sixteen days after last visiting Saturn's largest moon, NASA's Cassini spacecraft returns for another look-see of the cloud-shrouded moon - this time from on high.
Hills with a wrinkly radial pattern stand out in a new radar image captured by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft on Dec. 28, 2009.
NASA'S Cassini spacecraft will return to Titan's southern hemisphere on a flyby tomorrow, Jan. 12, plunging to within about 1,050 kilometers (about 670 miles) of the hazy moon's surface.
Blobs of warm ice that periodically rise to the surface and churn the icy crust on Saturn's moon Enceladus explain the quirky behavior of the moon's south polar region.
Though there are no plans to investigate whether Saturn's moon Titan has a Santa Claus, NASA's Cassini will zoom close to Titan's north pole this weekend.
Like sugar plum fairies in "The Nutcracker," the moons of Saturn performed a celestial ballet before the eyes of NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
