Event Type: Lecture/Talk
Speaker: Dr Sarah Badman (Lancaster)
The Cassini spacecraft plunged into Saturn’s atmosphere on 15 Sept 2017 after thirteen years in orbit around the planet. During its mission, Cassini explored the planet, its moons and rings, andreleased the Huygens probe to land on the largest moon, Titan. I will present what I consider to be some of the most interesting discoveries made during the mission, and how they are shaping our understanding of the Saturn system and ideas for future planetary missions.
The talk starts at 18.30pm, with refreshments available from 18.00pm.
