Radar on Titan - New Discoveries about Methane Lakes and Streams
Instruments aboard the Cassini Orbiter have revealed that Saturn's giant moon, Titan, is a world of lakes, streams, mountains and, possibly, ice volcanoes. This lecture will focus on radar images that are giving scientists first-of-a-kind views of an exotic world that may yield insights about Earth's past and future. In the spring of 2001, Dr. Lunine accepted the position of David C. Duncan Professor of Astronomy at Cornell.
