Hot Topic Solar System Saturn Saturn system
The Birth of a Saturn Moon
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: NASA's Cassini spacecraft has documented the formation of a small icy object within the rings of Saturn that may be a new moon.

A New View of Saturn and Earth
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: NASA's Cassini mission has released a spectacular new image of Saturn, it's moons, the Earth, Mars and Venus.

Saturn's Vintage Goods
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: New data from Cassini suggests that the rings and moons of Saturn are bodies that date back to around the time of our solar system's birth.

Cassini Still Going Strong
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: NASA's Cassini mission is continuing its exploration of the Saturn system. Cassini has provided invaluable data for astrobiologists studying life's potential on moons of giant planets.

Another Pac-Man at Saturn
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: NASA's Cassini mission has spotted a second feature shaped like the 1980s video game icon in the Saturn system, this time on the moon Tethys.

Giant Impacts May Explain Unusual Moons of Saturn
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: A new hypothesis explains the origin of Saturn's strange middle-sized moons. The moons may have been spawned during giant impacts that occurred when several major satellites merged to form Saturn's large moon, Titan.

Ice Avalanches on Iaputus
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: Scientists have revealed new information about the fluid-like motion of landslides on Saturn's moon Iapetus.

Proto-Planet Phoebe
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: Data from Cassini has revealed that Saturn's moon Phoebe is more planet-like than previously thought. Phoebe may have originated in the Kuiper Belt beyond Neptune, and was later captured by Saturn's gravity when it somehow got close to the giant planet.

Oxygen Atmosphere Detected on Saturn's Moon Dione
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: NASA's Cassini spacecraft has detected molecular oxygen ions around Saturn's icy moon Dione. The discovery indicates that the moon has a very tenuous atmosphere.

New Images Indicate Tectonic Activity on Rhea
Topic: Saturn system
Summary: New images of Saturn's moon Rhea have revealed dramatic fractures cutting through craters on the moon's surface. The findings are helping astrobiologists understand the processes that occur on moons of giant planets, and could help identify potentially habitable environments on these small worlds.
