Titan Flyby - July 2, 2006

June 30, 2006

Two years after reaching Saturn, the Cassini spacecraft is halfway to completing its orbital mission. On July 2, Cassini will perform its 16th flyby of Saturn's largest moon, Titan. Cassini will focus on the interactions between Titan's atmosphere and the big bubble that surrounds Saturn, called the magnetosphere. Cassini will also study Titan's surface to enable a better understanding of its properties and composition.
