A hot start billions of years ago might have set into motion the forces that power geysers on Saturn's moon Enceladus.
An epic space mission and one of the founding fathers of the European space endeavor will be forever linked. NASA and European space officials are honoring Hubert Curien by naming the Huygens landing site on Saturn's largest moon, Titan, after him.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has captured never-before-seen views of Saturn from perspectives high above and below the planet’s rings.
In celebration of the holiday season and the close of another remarkable year at the Saturnian frontier, the Imaging Team for NASA's Cassini mission is presenting a smorgasbord of Saturnian imagery.
The tallest mountains ever seen on Titan -- coated with layers of organic material and blanketed by clouds -- have been imaged by NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
Scientists with NASA's Cassini mission have spied a new, continuously changing feature that provides circumstantial evidence that a comet or asteroid recently collided with Saturn's innermost ring, the faint D ring.
Cassini scientists are on the trail of the missing moons of Saturn.
Saturn appears dressed to the nines, "wearing" a strand of "pearls" in a stunning infrared image from the Cassini spacecraft that showcases a meteorological phenomenon.
A new image of Saturn demonstrates a technique that creates a 'Chinese lantern' effect, showing Saturn's deep clouds silhouetted against the planet's warm, glowing interior.
Saturn sports a new ring in an image taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft on Sunday, Sept. 17, during a one-of-a-kind observation.
Liquid methane drizzles on the surface of Titan, a moon of Saturn, according to a paper by NASA and university scientists.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has found lakes on Saturn's moon Titan. The lakes are most likely the source of hydrocarbon smog in the frigid moon's atmosphere.
New radar images from NASA's Cassini spacecraft revealed geological features similar to Earth on Xanadu, an Australia-sized, bright region on Saturn's moon Titan.
As the Cassini spacecraft reaches the halfway mark in its four-year tour of the Saturn system, discoveries made during the first half of the mission have scientists revved up to find out what?s in store for the second act.
The cold, icy orbs of the Saturn system come to life in a slew of new movie clips from the Cassini spacecraft showing the ringed planet's moons in motion.
Saturn's moon Enceladus ? an active, icy world with an unusually warm south pole - may have performed an unusual trick for a planetary body. New research shows Enceladus rolled over, literally, explaining why the moon's hottest spot is at the south pole.
We all know Earth rotates every 24 hours, but scientists have long had difficulty pinpointing how long the day is on Saturn.
New views of the most distant touchdown ever made by a spacecraft are being released today by NASA, the European Space Agency and the University of Arizona.
Saturn's moon Titan continued to surprise scientists during a flyby that took Cassini into regions previously unexplored by radar.
