Cool Links 1: Cassini Images of Enceladus

October 25th, 2008 by Morgan J. Locke

I have a couple of nifty items to share today. First, check out these NASA images of Saturn’s tiny inner moon, Enceladus.

Encelades and Saturn's Rings

Be sure to view all the images and read the captions — it’s the compilation of images that makes these Cassini images so striking. A couple of the close fly-bys show striking detail of the moon’s surface. (Via Patricia Rogers.)

    I haven’t seen this image yet. I studied this stuff back in school and always thought the Cassini Mission was cool- I liked this L Studio documentary about it too-

    Seconded. Do watch the video; it’s short and fun.

    Anytime- I was watching a few of the other vids on the site, and the ones that grabbed my attention most were the Cassini and Shigeru Ban architecture vids. Always fun to see these new pics from Cassini though, so thanks for posting
