JPL Moons Page

JPL now has a page on their Cassini website dedicated to the science related to the 34 moons of Saturn. Basically you can click on a moon, see a list of science goals, flybys, and images taken so far for that moon. Still a work in progress, like no individual goals for each moon, no inclusion of non-targeted flybys in the list of encounters, etc. But still might be worth a visit for those who would like a primer on the Saturnian system.

Well, ummm, we well, lost the other three. They were very close to the F ring when found and the thinking right now is that they were temporary ring clumps that are now no longer there.
