Planetary Society: T5 Plans; Tethy Tweak

The Planetary Society has an article on its website on tomorrow's Titan flyby. This article also has information on the recently approved Tethys targeted flyby in September. Not much new WRT tomorrow's flyby. They are still repeating the idea that VIMS can get better resolution than ISS at their highest resolution. Mark my words, we will get better than VIMS resolution on the T5 flyby.
The second part describes the Tethys tweak. This is the adjustment of the tour whereby a non-targeted Tethys encounter in September at 33,000 km has now become a targeted flyby at 1500 km. However, the article quotes the flyby distance as 1000 km. Not sure which is correct...
