Enceladus 'E-16' Flyby: Radar Looks at Enceladus
November 6, 2011

The primary goal of this flyby is to obtain the first detailed radar observation of Enceladus. This will be the first close radar pass of an icy moon besides Titan; the results will enable a comparison of the radar properties of a moon with a known composition (Enceladus) with that of Titan.
