The Raw Materials for Life Were Found on Enceladus

A team of German scientists recently examined data gathered by the Cassini orbiter around Enceladus’ southern polar region and found was evidence of organic signatures that could be the building blocks for amino acids.

Surprise 4,000-mile ‘ice corridor’ found on Saturn’s moon Titan

Researchers have spotted surprisingly diverse landscapes on Titan, from broad planes to sandy dunes and even rivers and lakes. And recently a ribbon of exposed bedrock ice that wraps nearly halfway around the moon was spotted there too.

NASA's Cassini reveals surprises with Titan's lakes

On its final flyby of Saturn's largest moon in 2017, NASA's Cassini spacecraft gathered radar data revealing just how deep some of Titan's lakes are (more than 100 meters) and of their composition.

Saturn is losing its rings at 'worst-case-scenario' rate

New NASA research confirms that Saturn is losing its iconic rings at the maximum rate. The rings have less than 100 million years to live. This is relatively short, compared to Saturn's age of over 4 billion years.

Saturn's largest moon may hold key to cleaner engines

Researchers determined hydrocarbons can form the type of complex chains that create Titan's orange-brown haze layers at temperatures as low as 330 degrees below freezing on Earth.

Hubble Captures Enormous Northern Auroras on Saturn

Hubble Space telescope snapped a series of stunning images of auroras dancing in the sky. The observations were taken before and after the Saturnian northern summer solstice.

Dazzling Views Show Saturn Moon Titan Like Never Before

The mysterious surface of Saturn's huge moon Titan comes into gloriously sharp focus in newly released photos captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

Ingredients for Life Found on Saturn’s Moon, Enceladus

Using mass spectrometry data from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, scientists found that large, carbon-rich organic molecules are ejected from cracks in the icy surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus.

We now have a complete map of Titan's surface

It's Surprisingly Like Earth. Saturn moon's three biggest puddles have a common equipotential surface – a sea level, just like our own oceans.

Saturn's moon Titan sports Earth-like features

Using the now-complete Cassini data set, astronomers have created a new global topographic map of Titan.
