Cassini's E-12 through E-21 Trajectories
March 8, 2012

This graphic shows the trajectories for the Cassini spacecraft during its flybys of the icy moon Enceladus through the 21st planned targeted encounter.

With the exception of E-12, E-13, and E-16, each of these close fly-bys will allow sampling of Enceladus’ plumes.
