Past Discoveries by Pioneer 11 • This picture of Saturn and Titan in the upper left was taken 26 Aug 1979. • Discoveries: are Saturn's F ring and a new moon. • Planet's overall temperature at -180°C • It emits 2.5 more energy than Jupiter. • Liquid hydrogen with a core of about 10 Earth masses F-ring is the outer layer of the rings

  3. This picture was taken 1 Sept 1979. F-ring It discovered two new moons (almost smacking into one of them in September 1979) and a new "F" ring. It also charted the magnetosphere, magnetic field and mapped the general structure of Saturn's interior.

  5. Present Discoveries of Titan by Cassini Taken 15 May 2013 • First global topographic map of Saturn's moon Titan • Mathematical process called splining • Polar regions are "lower" than areas around the equator • Add new layers to their studies of Titan's surface • Where Titan's rivers flow, and where the methane rainfall is.
