Saturn: The Latest Discoveries
Saturn, sixth planet from the sun, is the second largest planet in our solar system.
Visions of a volcanic plume spewing out of Jupiter’s moon Io and a swirling storm were among the first images returned by a NASA probe as it approached an early-morning swing past the gas giant today.
Icy particles ejected from a geyser on Saturn's moon Enceladus is blanketing other nearby satellites in reflective dust and ice, making them unusually bright, a new study suggest.
A mammoth cloud recently spotted on Saturnï¿½s moon Titan is half the size of the contiguous United States might be whatï¿½s filling up lakes discovered there last year.
Watching the full Moon rise over the east-northeast horizon on Friday evening, you will probably notice Saturn shining sedately just above and to the Moon's right.
My first glimpse of the ringed planet through a friend’s telescope many years ago got me hooked on this hobby. Decades later, an encounter with Saturn on a steady night still takes my breath away.
A NASA probe hurtling towards Pluto will hit the accelerator next month when it flies past the planetary giant Jupiter.
Images shot last summer by NASA's Cassini spacecraft provide the strongest evidence yet that Titan, a saturnian moon and one of the most Earth-like celestial body in the solar system, is dotted with a multitude of liquid lakes.
The enormous plume erupting on Saturn’s moon, Enceladus, may be emanating from a substance much colder than liquid water, scientists announced today.
As we search for extraterrestrial life, Earth in some sense always provides our framework. The data indicate that life does in fact exist on this planet, and it existed here sometime before about 3.5 billion years ago (give or take a couple hundred milli
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has seen something never before seen on another planet -- a hurricane-like storm at Saturn's south pole with a well-developed eye, ringed by towering clouds.
The Cassini spacecraft is roughly halfway through its looping voyage of the Saturn system and is continuing to return a bounty of data on the ringed planet and its moons. Yet all journeys must have an end and Cassini's eventual fate is now being discussed
HONOLULU (AP) – Scientists studying the atmosphere of Saturn's moon, Titan, hope their research will reveal clues about the nature of Earth's atmosphere billions of years ago.
NASA scientists discover two new rings around Saturn, and think the planet’s missing moons could be lurking nearby.
Titan’s surface could be covered by dusty dunes composed of ethane and smog particles.
The shadow cast by a moon as it floated through space above the blue-green cloud tops of Uranus was recently captured for the first time by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
One of the major goals of NASA's Cassini mission was to find lakes or seas on Saturn's moon Titan. Now scientist say they've found lakes.
New radar images of Saturn's moon Titan reveal dunes, hills, valleys and rivers that scientist say look a lot like home.
