Default Cassini: Titan Flyby on May 20

Titan Flyby - May 20, 2006

The Cassini spacecraft will study the hazy atmosphere of
Saturn's moon Titan from the inside out during a flyby on
May 20.

Cassini will transmit radio waves to Earth as it flies
behind Titan. The radio waves will pass through Titan's
atmosphere, revealing characteristics about the
atmosphere's temperature, structure and winds.

During this flyby, Cassini also will bounce radio waves
off the surface of Titan for receipt on Earth. The
reflectiveness at different wavelengths will provide
information about the surface roughness and composition.
