Cassini Observes the Active South Pole of Enceladus
The shape of Enceladus suggests a possible intense heating epoch in the past by capture into a 1:4 secondary spin/orbit resonance.
Cassini Imaging of Jupiter's Atmosphere, Satellites, and Rings
Findings on Jupiter's zonal winds, convective storms, low-latitude upper troposphere, polar stratosphere, and northern aurora are reported, including previously unseen emissions arising from Io and Europa in eclipse, and a giant volcanic plume over Io's north pole are described.
Cassini Imaging Science: Instrument Characteristics And Anticipated Scientific Investigations At Saturn
The Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) is the highest-resolution two-dimensional imaging device on the Cassini Orbiter and has been designed for investigations of the bodies and phenomena found…
Mass movement slope streaks imaged by the Mars Orbiter Camera
Narrow, fan-shaped dark streaks on steep Martian slopes were originally observed in Viking Orbiter images, but a definitive explanation was not possible because of resolution limitations. Pictures…
Voyager 2 at Neptune: Imaging Science Results
Voyager 2 images of Neptune reveal a windy planet characterized by bright clouds of methane ice suspended in an exceptionally clear atmosphere above a lower deck of hydrogen sulfide or ammonia ices.…
Encounter with saturn: voyager 1 imaging science results.
As Voyager 1 flew through the Saturn system it returned photographs revealing many new and surprising characteristics of this complicated community of bodies, including small inner satellites that interact gravitationally with one another and with the ring particles in ways not observed elsewhere in the solar system.
A New Look at the Saturn System: The Voyager 2 Images
Within Saturn's rings, the "birth" of a spoke has been observed, and surprising azimuthal and time variability is found in the ringlet structure of the outer B ring, leading to speculations about Saturn's internal structure and about the collisional and thermal history of the rings and satellites.
Galileo Encounter with 951 Gaspra: First Pictures of an Asteroid
Galileo images of Gaspra reveal it to be an irregularly shaped object that appears to have been created by a catastrophic collisional disruption of a precursor parent body.
The geology of 433 Eros
Abstract— The global high‐resolution imaging of asteroid 433 Eros by the Near‐Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) Shoemaker spacecraft has made it possible to develop the first comprehensive picture of…
Cassini Imaging Science: Initial Results on Saturn's Rings and Small Satellites
Images acquired of Saturn's rings and small moons by the Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem have produced many new findings, including new saturnian moons; refined orbits of new and previously known moons; ring particle albedos in select ring regions; and never-before-seen phenomena within the rings.
