The diversity of the moons orbiting Saturn continues to astound both the general public and the world of planetary science. Have Cassini’s observations been able to answer long-standing questions about these bodies? Come hear two members of Cassini’s Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph science team talk about a few of Saturn’s natural satellites, as studied by its human-made satellite. Candice Hansen and Amanda Hendrix (both from the Planetary Science Institute) will discuss plume detection at Enceladus and the so-called recent “Five Fabulous Flybys” of small Saturnian moons Pan, Atlas, and others.
