Two of the planet Saturn's moons, Prometheus and Pan, are caught "herding" their respective rings in this NASA handout image released January 24, 2013. The bright dot near the inner edge of the Encke gap is a background star. The image was taken in visible violet light with the Cassini spacecraft na
This artist's concept envisions what hydrocarbon ice forming on a liquid hydrocarbon sea of Saturn's moon Titan might look like in this NASA image released on January 8, 2013. A new model from scientists on NASA's Cassini mission suggests that clumps of methane-and-ethane-rich ice -- shown here as t
