Abundant molecular oxygen in the coma of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko
The composition of the neutral gas comas of most comets is dominated by H2O, CO and CO2, typically comprising as much as 95 per cent of the total gas density. In addition, cometary comas have beenExpand

Cassini Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer: Enceladus Plume Composition and Structure
The Cassini spacecraft passed within 168.2 kilometers of the surface above the southern hemisphere at 19:55:22 universal time coordinated on 14 July 2005 during its closest approach to Enceladus.Expand

A self‐consistent model of the Jovian auroral thermal structure
A one-dimensional (1-D) model coupling a two-stream electron transport model of energy deposition with a 1-D thermal conduction model has been developed. It is applied to investigate the linksExpand

Mussel-Inspired Adhesives and Coatings.
Mussels attach to solid surfaces in the sea. Their adhesion must be rapid, strong, and tough, or else they will be dislodged and dashed to pieces by the next incoming wave. Given the dearth ofExpand

The Process of Tholin Formation in Titan's Upper Atmosphere
Titan's lower atmosphere has long been known to harbor organic aerosols (tholins) presumed to have been formed from simple molecules, such as methane and nitrogen (CH4 and N2). Up to now, it has beenExpand

Jupiter's main auroral oval observed with HST-STIS
[1] An extended series of FUV images obtained on 7 days during winter 2000–2001, with fixed pointing, yielded highly accurate tracking of emisson features as Jupiter rotated. They provided newlyExpand

Liquid water on Enceladus from observations of ammonia and 40 Ar in the plume
Since Cassini spacecraft images revealed plumes of water vapour and ice particles erupting from Saturn's moon Enceladus in 2006, the search for the water source has been on. Possibilities includeExpand

The ionosphere as a fully adequate source of plasma for the Earth's magnetosphere
A series of recent measurements of the outflow of ionization from the ionosphere have further heightened our awareness of the strength of the ionospheric source of magnetospheric plasmas. In thisExpand

INMS-derived composition of Titan's upper atmosphere: Analysis methods and model comparison
Abstract The Cassini Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS) has recorded full altitude profile data from 20 low-altitude Titan encounters during the nominal mission (July 2004–2008). TheseExpand

Horizontal structures and dynamics of Titan's thermosphere
[1] The Cassini Ion Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS) measures densities of gases including N2 and CH4 in situ in Titan's upper atmosphere. We have used data from 13 targeted flybys of Titan (T5–T32)Expand
