Cassini Headed South on Titan
Artist concept of Cassini's flyby at Saturn's moon Titan. Artist concept of Titan flyby. Image credit: NASA/JPL Cassini successfully completed its most recent Titan flyby on Dec. 20, 2007, and data are currently being analyzed. During this flyby, the radar instrument studied Titan's "deep south." This will allow scientists to contrast this region against what they found in the lake regions of the north polar area. The spacecraft went as far south as 70 degrees. The radar imaged areas of the Tsegihi region it had not yet seen, and got some overlap in coverage. New ground was covered south of the dune fields of Belet
