Astronomers from the Netherlands have made a surprising new discovery, finding a planet with rings that are bigger in size and number compared to the rings of Saturn.
Call it a deep-space selfie if you will. Recently-released images from NASA's Cassini spacecraft show off Saturn in all its glory, including its rings, and for the first time ever, Earth and its moon in the background.
A new study suggests that Saturn's largest moon, Titan, has a thick, rigid crust of ice, and is apparently far stronger than researchers previously thought.
After traveling almost 900 million miles through outer space last Friday, NASA's Cassini spacecraft has beamed back ravishing pictures closeup shoots of Saturn with Earth in the backgound as a "pale blue dot."
For the first time ever, NASA's Cassini spacecraft recorded a gargantuan hurricane churning around Saturn's north pole on the visible-light spectrum. The hurricane stems from an enigmatic six-sided weather phenomenon known as "the hexagon."
Saturn will reach its opposition point on Sunday, Apr. 28 in what is expected to be the best view of the ringed-planet in six years.
Next time you worry about the rain, just be glad it's not pouring from outer space. A new study by the University of Leicester, England, tracked the "rain" of charged water particles that fall from the rings of Saturn and affects the atmosphere of the planet.
A new fine-toothed examination of NASA's Cassini spacecraft's observations of Saturn has revealed that its breathtaking rings are "vintage goods" stemming from our solar system's birth, and are actually the origins of one of Saturn's moons.
From the birth of new celestial life in the cosmos, scientists may have gained a glimpse into the mysteries behind the creation of certain planets.
The Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn’s moon Titan has snapped a picture of the longest liquid river yet found in the solar system outside of Earth. And it’s not water.
On Titan, Saturn's moon, a Nile-like river filled with the liquid hydrocarbons ethane and methane stretches 250 miles long.
Thirty-five years after its launch into space, NASA will talk about the latest findings of the spacecraft that has traveled farther than anything ever built on Monday.
Pac-Man projected himself into the public consciousness in 1980, but he has since graduated to the stars, according to a study published in the journal Icarus.
The two planets will cross path early Tuesday morning and will appear low above the east-southeast horizon.
NASA's Cassini mission took an interesting photograph of the Saturn moon Tethys, in which the surface temperature distribution looks like Pac-Man.
