Image credit: NASA/JPL On Cassini's next Titan flyby on Dec. 20, 2007, the radar instrument will reveal Titan's "deep south" and allow scientists to contrast this region against what they found in the lake regions of the north polar area. The spacecraft will go as far south as 70 degrees. The radar will image new areas of the Tsegihi region it has not yet seen, and get some overlap in coverage. New ground will be covered south of the dune fields of Belet.
