Science ‘to go’

This page offers summarized information “to go” from my website’s topics for a quick availability on your smartphone in .jpg or .png format. Feel free to copy the files and store them on your phone.
At bottom, there are YouTube links of two of my Cassini talks from 2017 — one in English, the other in German.
Diese Seite bietet Informationen “zum Mitnehmen” im .jpg oder .png Format zu ausgewählten Themen meiner Webseite. Dafür darfst Du die Bilddateien gerne auf Dein Smartphone laden.
Ganz unten auf der Seite befinden sich zudem YouTube-Links zu zwei meiner Vorträge über Cassini aus dem Jahr 2017 — einer auf deutsch, der andere auf englisch.

Irregular Moons in the Solar System: a,i Plot

Plot (.png format) of a,i space for 144 Irregular moons: Jupiter 71 objects, Saturn 58, Uranus 9, Neptune 6.
For technical details, see → here.

Hill radii:
53.1·106 km = 0.355 au = 743 RJ
65.5·106 km = 0.438 au = 1090 RS
70.1·106 km = 0.469 au = 2740 RU
116.1·106 km = 0.776 au = 4690 RN

Jupiter’s Irregular Moons

Table of names and absolute magnitudes H of the Irregular moons of Jupiter. The objects are ordered by orbit-dynamical group and by H. From H, object sizes can be estimated, see formula ‘D = …’ in note (7). In .png format.

List of Saturn Moons Names

The names of the 83 moons of Saturn known in 2022, ordered by distance from the planet. Modified screenshot (.png format) from a powerpoint viewgraph that I used in public talks. Feel free to memorize.😉

a,e,i Plot of Saturn’s Irregular Moons

Polar plot (.png format) of the a,i (semi-major axis, inclination) space for the Irregular moons of Saturn known since 2007, adapted from Fig. 1 on page 412 in Denk et al. (2018). The thin bars are proxies for the eccentricities e, by showing periapsis and apoapsis distances of each object.

Iapetus Trailing and Leading Sides

Between 2004 and 2017, the Cassini spacecraft made multiple observations of Saturn’s peculiar moon Iapetus, including a very close (“targeted”) flyby in Sep 2007 and another relatively close flyby at New-year’s Eve 2004. Iapetus is famous for its extreme brightness dichotomy with the leading side (right) being ∼10x darker as the trailing side (left) and polar regions.

Iapetus Surface Map

After the Cassini spacecraft‘s “targeted” flyby in Sep 2007, a map of Iapetus has been compiled. I created the version shown here for a good overview of the names of the large basins (in red), craters (yellow and blue), mountains (green), and regiones (orange). The area with the craters labelled in blue color has already been imaged by the Voyager-2 spacecraft in Aug 1981.

Galileo Jupiter Orbit Tour 1995–2003 (Petal Plot)

The Galileo spacecraft was orbiting Jupiter 35 times from 07 Dec 1995 until 21 Sep 2003. The petal plot (.png format) shows the orbit in a Sun-Jupiter fixed frame. Orbit inclinations were near zero all the time.
