Cassini Probe to Fly by Saturn’s Moon Titan Tuesday

The Cassini spacecraft is set to buzz through the upper atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan on Tuesday. If all goes according to plan, the probe will use high-tech cameras during the flyby to peer through Titan’s hazy orange atmosphere and peek at the moon’s mysterious surface.

“This is the first good look at Titan,” said Dennis Matson, project scientist for the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn and Titan at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
