If you have a question about this talk, please contact physics-secretary.

We look at some of the most surprising and important scientific discoveries from the Cassini mission orbiting Saturn. These are:

(1) The ubiquitous periodic 'signal' in Saturn's magnetic field and other physical parameters.
(2) The unusual shape of Saturn's plasma sheet - a 'warped disc' of charged particles which rotates about the planet.
(3) The surprising property of the ionosphere of Saturn's moon Titan to retain a 'memory' of the magnetic field to which it is exposed for time intervals as long as three hours.

The talk is free for CUPS members, £2 for non-members, and will be followed by a wine reception.
