On April 12, 2017, the Cassini spacecraft passed just 11,000 km from the weird Saturn moon named Atlas. What it saw was either a flying saucer or ravioli.
In September 2017, the Cassini spacecraft's mission will end as it plunges into the atmosphere of Saturn. A video by NASA/JPL memorializes the spacecraft's final moments.
A lovely photo of Jupiter taken by Damian Peach in February 2017 shows something you may never have noticed: Jupiter is squished! But why? Let our resident Bad Astronomer, Phil Plait, put his spin on this.
Mimas, an icy moon of Saturn and Death Star decoy, gets its last hurrah as Cassini flies by it for a final time. The images returned are spectacular.
New images from the Cassini Saturn spacecraft show new details on the very weird little moon Pan. It's flying-saucer-shaped, ringed with a ridge of icy material kilometers high!
A new Cassini image of Saturn shows amazing details in the giant planet's rings, including "propellers": Weird features due to gravity and orbital motion.
With the Cassini-Huygens mission set to wrap up in September, NASA has released some footage from the probe's fly-by of Saturn's moon Titan.
Here's a dazzling new series of images direct from a close call with Saturn's rings.
Titan has one particular advantage over the Moon and Mars when it comes to colonization.
Saturn’s moon Titan is one of the most interesting sites in our solar system, and NASA wants to build a high-tech submarine to explore its icy depths.
Scientists have always been hopeful that Saturn’s moon Titan might harbor signs of alien life, and it seems the odds have only gotten better with some new findings.
Here's a video compilation piecing together 11 years of NASA's Cassini spacecraft images.
Astronomers of the future could have a very different view of the solar system in the next few million years.
Due to the fact that Saturn is mostly a big ol’ ball of gas on the surface, it's made it tough sledding for scientists to figure out the length of a day there. Until now.
The rings of Saturn are an absolutely gorgeous feature of our solar system, but astronomers just found a similar planet that makes them look like a runner-up at best.
