As the most ambitious and interdisciplinary planetary exploration mission ? own to date, it has extended our knowledge of the Saturn system to levels of detail at least an order of magnitude beyond that gained from all previous missions to Saturn.

In some ways the partnerships formed and lessons learned may be the most enduring legacy of Cassinia€“Huygens. The broad, international coalition that is Cassinia€“ Huygens is now conducting the Cassini Equinox Mission and planning the Cassini Solstice Mission, and in a major expansion of those fruitful efforts, has extended the collaboration to the study of new ? agship missions to both Jupiter and Saturn. Such ventures have and will continue to enrich us all, and evoke a very optimistic vision of the future of international collaboration in planetary exploration.A DTM of the T16a€“T19 overlap, produced by adapting matching software from the Magellan mission (Hensley and Schafer 1994), ... 2007) at its northern end, so the authors supplemented it with manual measurements of lake shores, scarps, and other discrete features. ...
