Artist's concept of the T-74 flyby of Titan

Titan Flyby (T-74) -- Feb. 18, 2011
February 18, 2011

This is a post-dusk, upstream, high altitude ‘blind’ flyby that will be useful to characterize the background magnetic field in which Titan sits. The Cassini plasma spectrometer (CAPS) will observe Titan’s plasma interaction as the moon moves from south to north of Saturn’s solar-wind-warped magnetodisk from one solstice to the next.
