Titan 101 Flyby

May 17, 2014

For Cassini’s Radio Science team, the May 17 flyby of Titan was one of the most scientifically valuable encounters of the spacecraft’s current extended mission. The focus of this flyby, designated T-101, was on enabling the Radio Science (RSS) team to bounce signals off the surface of Titan, toward Earth, where they were received by the stations of NASA Deep Space Network.
