Global Analysis of Titan In its orbit around Saturn, the Cassini spacecraft passes regularly by the planet's largest moon, Titan. Using a radar instrument to peer through the moon's thick atmosphere, Zebker et al. (p. 921, published online 2 April) developed a global model of Titan. Titan is slightly oblate, so that its poles have lower elevations than the equator, which may explain why the moon's hydrocarbon lakes are located at high latitudes. Titan’s poles lie at lower elevations than the… Expand
