December 3, 2007. The Cassini spacecraft's close flyby of Epimetheus in December 2007 returned detailed images of the moon's south polar region. The view shows what might be the remains of a large impact crater covering most of this face, and which c...

April 7, 2010. Swinging by Saturn's small moon Epimetheus, Cassini snapped this shot during the spacecraft's flyby. Lit terrain seen here is on the Saturn-facing side of Epimetheus (113 kilometers, or 70 miles across). North on Epimetheus is up and r...

Every planet in our solar system is famous for something. Saturn has its rings, Mars has its soil, Uranus that unfortunate name, and Jupiter has the Great Red Spot: a titanic storm that has been spinning for over 350 years. And though we've peer...

March 24, 2010. Saturn's moon Rhea looms "over" a smaller and more distant Epimetheus against a striking background of planet and rings. The two moons aren't actually close to each other. The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 1.2 milli...

Saturn's biggest moon, Titan, is one of the few viable places humans can explore first-hand beyond Mars. It's relatively safe from radiation, it's covered in liquid (though not water) and otherwise relatively safe. But could more than...

Dione and Telesto

March 4, 2010. Saturn's moon Dione dwarfs the moon Telesto in this Cassini spacecraft image. Dione (1123 kilometers, 698 miles across) is the fourth largest of Saturn's moons, and it dominates this view. Tiny Telesto (25 kilometers, or 16 miles acros...

March 3, 2010. The Cassini spacecraft snapped this image during the spacecraft's closest flyby of Saturn's moon Helene (33 kilometers, or 21 miles across). The small moon leads the much larger Dione by 60 degrees in the moons' shared orbit. Please vi...
