Saturn silhouetted, Cassini image Featured Cassini Print

Saturn silhouetted, Cassini image

Saturn silhouetted. Cassini spacecraft image of Saturn and its ring system with the Sun directly behind. The view revealed two previously unknown rings. One, associated with the orbits of the moons Janus and Epimetheus, lies in between the outer edge of the bright main rings and the thin grey/brown G Ring. The other, associated with the orbit of the moon Pallene, lies just inside the broad and diffuse outer E ring. Earth is seen as a bright dot at the ten o'clock position between the bright main rings and the G Ring. This is a composite of 165 images taken at infrared, visible light and ultraviolet wavelengths by the Cassini spacecraft on 15th September 2006, while it was around 2.2 million kilometres from Saturn

Saturns north pole region, Cassini image Featured Cassini Print

Saturns north pole region, Cassini image

Saturn's north pole region, Cassini image. This north polar hexagon region of the gas giant planet Saturn is in sunlight as spring comes to the planet's northern hemisphere. Saturn takes 29 years to orbit the Sun. Smaller storms are seen within the larger pattern. The sides of the hexagon are each around 13, 800 kilometres long. In the background is part of Saturn's rings (upper right). Saturn's shadow (upper left) partially obscures the rings. Image obtained on 27 November 2012, by the wide-angle camera on the orbiting Cassini spacecraft. A spectral filter was used that is sensitive to wavelengths of near-infrared light

Technician places Cosmic Dust Analyser in tester

MODEL RELEASED. Cosmic dust analyser testing. Dr Simon Green places the Cosmic Dust Analyser (CDA) in a test chamber. The CDA is designed to collect and analyse interplanetary and interstellar dust. This chamber simulates the environment in space. A vacuum is formed inside the chamber, and dust particles are accelerated to around 200 kilometres per second and fired into the chamber. The CDA was part of the payload on the Cassini mission to Saturn, which launched in October 1997. Information on the mass, speed and composition of cosmic dust particles is important, as future missions will have to be protected against damage from small high-velocity collisions
