- Titan and the Cassini-Huygens mission. Coustenis, Athena // AIP Conference Proceedings;2006, Vol. 848 Issue 1, p23
The Cassini-Huygens mission has initiated its long exploration of the Saturnian system in July 2004, after a 7,5 year trek through our solar system. Since the Saturn Orbit Insertion, we have witnessed the great success of the Huygens mission, the probe descent through Titan�s atmosphere, on...
- Where Did the Rings Come From? // Sky & Telescope;May2013, Vol. 125 Issue 5, p24
The article discusses the formation of Saturn's rings. It informs that Staun's rings were formed when a large moon ventured too close to the planet and stripped of its outer layers. It mentions the two aspects of the Saturnian system that put serious constraints on the explanation of the rings...
- The walnut: iapetus. // New Scientist;3/27/2010, Vol. 205 Issue 2753, p34
This article presents photographs and information about lapetus, an icy moon of the planet Saturn. Lapetus is described as being half black and half bright white. It is squashed at the poles and on its sides and has a ridge running halfway around its equator, thus giving it the appearance of a...
- Scientists studying the shapes. // Aviation Week & Space Technology;1/8/2007, Vol. 166 Issue 2, p79
The article reports on the studies conducted by scientists on the shapes of 75 radar dark patches in the northern hemisphere of Saturn's moon Titan. The scientists are leaning toward the theory that an Earth-like evaporation/condensation process is the most likely source of methane in the moon's...
- Stochastic Models of Hot Planetary and Satellite Coronas: Suprathermal Nitrogen in Titan's Upper Atmosphere. Shematovich, V. I. // Solar System Research;May/Jun2004, Vol. 38 Issue 3, p178
The processes of dissociation and dissociative ionization of molecular nitrogen by solar UV radiation and by the accompanying flux of photoelectrons, as well as sputtering of the atmosphere by fluxes of magnetospheric ions and pick-up ions, are the main sources of translationally excited (hot,...
