  1. Cassini May Have Captured an Image of Saturn’s Rings Giving Birth to a New Moon: “Peggy”

    At least moon birth is a lot more aesthetically pleasing than human birth.

    The Cassini spacecraft has been bringing us great shots of Saturn for a while now, but this new image may shed some light on a pretty rare phenomenon: the formation of a moon. It appears that particles on the outer edges of Saturn's rings are forming together and may be showing us how Saturn got so many moons.

  2. Astronomers Say There May Be Waves On Titan’s Seas, But Don’t Plan To Go Surfing “Just Yet”

    But, like, if you did, it would be gnarly.

    At yesterday's Lunar and Planetary Science Conference scientist Jason Barnes made an incredible announcement: NASA's Cassini Spacecraft has detected unusual glints of light that may indicate waves on Saturn's largest moon Titan. Saturn: go for the rings, stay for Titan's hydrocarbon boogie boarding.

  3. Have All of Your Saturn Questions Answered Today on NASA’s Cassini Mission Live Google Hangout [Updated]

    Talk to NASA about space. Have all of your dreams fulfilled.

    NASA will hold a live Google Hangout today to presumably talk about how great the pictures from Cassini have been (as well as some science stuff, probably) and where it's going in the future. If you like amazing space pictures as much as we do, watch the hour-long live chat with NASA scientists at 3:30PM EST.

  4. One Million Space Photos Animated in the Movie In Saturn’s Rings, Our Jaws Drop [Video]

    We suddenly feel very small.

    The film In Saturn's Rings takes over a million photographs from Cassini, Hubble, Voyager and more and turns them into an incredible animated ride through the universe. Sure, you've flown through pretend space plenty of times in movies, but when you watch this and realize that what you're seeing is real, it's spectacular.

  5. Look, the Cassini Spacecraft Brought Us Another Giant Picture of Saturn!

    Wasn't that nice of it?

    Remember those pictures of Saturn's eclipse that the Cassini spacecraft took back in July of this year? They've been combining all the different images into several gorgeous mosaics that are so pristine they look computer-animated. This one, which was just released today, shows us the dark side of Saturn as it's never been seen before.

  6. NASA’s New Picture of Saturn from the Cassini Spacecraft is Incredible

    We can't stop looking at it. Space is amazing.

    In "you won't believe it's real" news, NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day brings us an image of Saturn that looks like really convincing computer graphics. Amazingly, it's a real image of the planet brought to us by the Cassini spacecraft that is now orbiting Saturn.

  7. Are You in NASA’s Composite of Earthlings Waving to Saturn?

    Please tell me one of these pictures is of Waldo.

    On July 19th the Cassini spacecraft pointed itself at the Earth to snap a picture, and NASA encouraged everyone to smile, wave, and snap a photo of their own. Folks submitted more than 1,400 images from around the world. To says thanks, NASA made this lovely composite from the images. Can you find yourself?

  8. Cassini Spacecraft Snaps Beautiful Image of Saturn’s Pac-Man/Death Star Moon Mimas

    That's no moon... It's a space stati-- oh? Oh, it's actually a moon. Okay then.

    If you don't have a favorite moon of Saturn, let us make a case for Mimas. Thermal images make it look like Pac-Man, but regular pictures like this new one from NASA's Cassini spacecraft make it look like the Death Star. It shows Mimas passing by its little oblong-shaped buddy Pandora. Space is pretty.

  9. Say Cheese! Cassini Wants to Take Your Picture From Space This Afternoon

    This may be the best chance you ever get to photobomb another planet. Y'know, in principle.

    If you love photos from space but are always secretly bummed out that you're not in them, today is your lucky day. NASA's Cassini probe is snapping a picture of Saturn today, and hundreds of millions of miles distant in the background of the resulting image, you'll be able to see the Earth. That's right -- today and today only, you have the opportunity to photobomb NASA. Make it count, people.

  10. This Thunderstorm On Saturn Wrapped all The Way Around The Planet And Touched Its Own Tail

    Every once in a while, a story comes along to which the only appropriate response is "Dang." This morning brings us one such story, as images taken by NASA's Cassini probe in orbit around Saturn show it was host to a thunderstorm so massive that it wrapped around the entire planet. Like a snake attempting to eat its own tail, the atmospheric disturbance raced through Saturn's atmosphere with such speed and power that it eventually ran into its own rear end. That encounter seems to have caused it to sputter out, as if the storm somehow consumed itself, though the reasons for that are unclear to researchers.
