In a Cosmic Hit-and-Run, Icy Saturn Moon May Have Flipped



Ithaca NY (SPX) Jun 01, 2017
Enceladus - a large icy, oceanic moon of Saturn - may have flipped, the possible victim of an out-of-this-world wallop. While combing through data collected by NASA's Cassini mission during flybys of Enceladus, astronomers from Cornell University, the University of Texas and NASA have found the first evidence that the moon's axis has reoriented, according to new research published in Icarus. Examining the moon's geological features, the group showed how Enceladus appears to have tipped away ... read more

Walkabout Above 'Perseverance Valley'
Pasadena CA (JPL) Jun 12, 2017
Opportunity is at the top of "Perseverance Valley" on the rim of Endeavour Crater. The plan before proceeding down the valley is to perform a walk-about survey above the valley. To start the walkabout, on Sol 4746 (May 31, 2017) Opportunity drove about 82 feet (24.9 meters) mostly south toward a chosen waypoint. Images for extensive panoramas were collected with the Navigation Camera (Navc ... more
