Titan In A Different Light
For the past 13 years, the Cassini mission has been capturing data of Saturn's moon, Titan and stunning images have recently emerged. Shown above, these images were captured in infrared wavelengths by the Visual and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (VIMS) aboard the spacecraft.
