Sea Hunt -- Cassini Style
5 Apr 2007
Cassini's next Titan flyby on April 10, 2007, will bring the spacecraft over new parts of familiar terrain - the Saturnian moon's north polar region. During this radar pass, more lakes or seas are expected to be visible.
Among the new parts of familiar terrain to be imaged will be the other side boundary of the 'black sea', which could tell scientists more about its size. Additionally, the radar team has aligned this pass slightly southward so that it will align up with a future altimetry flyby planned for May 12.
