John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dr. Linda Spilker of JPL to discuss the Grand Finale of the great Cassini Mission.  We also talked about highlights of Cassini, what we learned about the rings, Titan, Enceladus and all of the moons of Saturn.  We discussed Titan and the methane seas on the moon. Dr. Spilker compared Titan with Earth and wondered what each would be like if their locations were reversed. We also talked about Enceladus and Dr. Spilker had much to say about the rings.  This was a great summary of a great mission.  Don't miss it.

You can email Mr. Batchelor or Dr. Spilker through me at  Dr. Spilker can also be reached through her JPL website page.
