Press Release: Cassini Images Reveal and Active, Earth-Like World

In conjunction with today's Nature issue, CICLOPS has released a press released describing the results of ISS observations of Titan through January. Among the highlights is the discovery of several bright and dark rings which maybe related to impact structures. One in fact was confirmed as an impact structure by RADAR last month. Also, the ISS team notes several dark, criss-crossing bands which maybe due to tectonism, and dark curvilinear structures which maybe large-scale, runoff channels or rivers.

Update: !$#%@ has the press release posted, not unexpected. However, the image they used as a thumbnail for the release, is from VIMS. !#^&@
