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
Impact excavation on Asteroid 4 Vesta: Hubble Space Telescope results
Hubble Space Telescope images of asteroid 4 Vesta obtained during the favorable 1996 apparition show an impact crater 460 kilometers in diameter near the south pole. Color measurements within theExpand
Differentiation of the asteroid Ceres as revealed by its shape
TLDR
C Ceres has a shape and smoothness indicative of a gravitationally relaxed object that is significantly less flattened than that expected for a homogeneous object, but is consistent with a central mass concentration indicative of differentiation. Expand
Sizes, shapes, and derived properties of the saturnian satellites after the Cassini nominal mission
Abstract The Cassini spacecraft has provided data on over twenty satellites orbiting Saturn. In this study we update the shape measurements derived from imaging data of nearly all the observedExpand
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
Report of the IAU/IAG Working Group on cartographic coordinates and rotational elements: 2006
Every three years the IAU/IAG Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements revises tables giving the directions of the poles of rotation and the prime meridians of the planets,Expand
Vesta: Spin Pole, Size, and Shape from HST Images
Abstract HST images obtained over an interval of 71 hr at a scale of 52 km/pixel have been used to determine the spin pole, size, and shape of Vesta. Several bright and dark surface features allowExpand
Iapetus’ geophysics : rotation rate, shape, and equatorial ridge
Iapetus has preserved evidence that constrains the modeling of its geophysical history from the time of its accretion until now. The evidence is (a) its present 79.33-day rotation or spin rate, (b)Expand
Enceladus's measured physical libration requires a global subsurface ocean
Abstract Several planetary satellites apparently have subsurface seas that are of great interest for, among other reasons, their possible habitability. The geologically diverse saturnian satelliteExpand
Report of the IAU Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements: 2009
Every three years the IAU Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements revises tables giving the directions of the poles of rotation and the prime meridians of the planets,Expand
