Titan
Cassini peers around the hazy limb of Titan to spy the sunlit south pole of Saturn in the distance beyond.  The thick, smog-like atmosphere of frigid Titan is a major source of interest for the Cassini mission. The moon is 5,150 kilometers (3,200 miles) across. Images taken using red, green and blue spectral filters were combined to create this natural-color view. The image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Dec. 26, 2005, at a distance of approximately 26,000 kilometers (16,000 miles) from Titan. Image scale is 1 kilometer (4,643 feet) per pixel. Caption: Cassini Solstice TeamNASA/JPL/SPACE SCIENCE INSTITUTE

The New Mexico Exoplanet Spectroscopic Survey Instrument (NESSI) will soon get its first “taste” of exoplanets, helping astronomers decipher their chemical composition. Exoplanets are planets that orbit stars beyond our sun.

NESSI got its…
