Cassini Observes the Active South Pole of Enceladus
TLDR
The shape of Enceladus suggests a possible intense heating epoch in the past by capture into a 1:4 secondary spin/orbit resonance. Expand
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 foundExpand
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.Expand
Cassini Imaging of Jupiter's Atmosphere, Satellites, and Rings
TLDR
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. Expand
Shapes of the saturnian icy satellites and their significance
The sizes and shapes of six icy saturnian satellites have been measured from Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) data, employing limb coordinates and stereogrammetric control points. Mimas,Expand
A New Look at the Saturn System: The Voyager 2 Images
TLDR
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. Expand
Encounter with saturn: voyager 1 imaging science results.
TLDR
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. Expand
Mars Observer camera
The Mars Observer camera (MOC) is a three-component system (one narrow-angle and two wide-angle cameras) designed to take high spatial resolution pictures of the surface of Mars and to obtain lowerExpand
Galileo Encounter with 951 Gaspra: First Pictures of an Asteroid
TLDR
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. Expand
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. PicturesExpand
