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 (ISS) during the first 9 months of Cassini operations at Saturn have produced many new findings. TheseExpand

Anatomy of a Flaring Proto-Planetary Disk Around a Young Intermediate-Mass Star
Although planets are being discovered around stars more massive than the Sun, information about the proto-planetary disks where such planets have built up is sparse. We have imaged mid-infraredExpand

The determination of the structure of Saturn’s F ring by nearby moonlets
Saturn’s narrow F ring exhibits several unusual features that vary on timescales of hours to years. These include transient clumps, a central core surrounded by a multistranded structure and aExpand

Cassini Imaging Science: Initial Results on Phoebe and Iapetus
The Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem acquired high-resolution imaging data on the outer Saturnian moon, Phoebe, during Cassini's close flyby on 11 June 2004 and on Iapetus during a flyby on 31Expand

Imaging of Titan from the Cassini spacecraft
Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, is the only satellite in the Solar System with a substantial atmosphere. The atmosphere is poorly understood and obscures the surface, leading to intenseExpand

The recent formation of Saturn's moonlets from viscous spreading of the main rings
The regular satellites of the giant planets are believed to have finished their accretion concurrent with the planets, about 4.5 Gyr ago. A population of Saturn’s small moons orbiting just outsideExpand

Origin and Evolution of Saturn's Ring System
The origin and long-term evolution of Saturn's rings is still an unsolved problem in modern planetary science. In this chapter we review the current state of our knowledge on this long-standingExpand

Did Saturn's rings form during the Late Heavy Bombardment?
Abstract The origin of Saturn's massive ring system is still unknown. Two popular scenarios—the tidal splitting of passing comets and the collisional destruction of a satellite—rely on a highExpand

Cassini Imaging Science: Initial Results on Saturn's Atmosphere
The Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) began observing Saturn in early February 2004. From analysis of cloud motions through early October 2004, we report vertical wind shear in Saturn'sExpand

Coupling dynamical and collisional evolution of small bodies: an application to the early ejection of planetesimals from the Jupiter-Saturn region
Abstract We present a new algorithm designed to compute the collisional erosion of a population of small bodies undergoing a complex and rapid dynamical evolution induced by strong gravitationalExpand
