The download is about 15 megabytes so it should only take a minute or two. (If you use a Mac you may need to install the software after it downloads and then restart your web-browser.) Once the plug-in is installed and the mission data is loaded you're ready for your trip to the Saturn System.<br /><br />When CASSIE appears in your web browser, you'll see three clickable windows.<p><hr /></p></p></blockquote> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

I've tested it. Great!<br />I liked too the "googleearthy" ball-rolling visu for the moons! A pity though that they are not zoomable, and that Titan is only an orange featureless surface.

Thank you very very much docm,<br /><br />This is superb. Took a little while to download the initial program, but it works great & yes<br />I second Joel's comments. <img src="/images/icons/laugh.gif" /><br /><br />I was afraid to try CASSIE initially, owing to my troubled technical history, but seeing as you<br />personally endorsed it, I thought I would try it.<br /><br />Joel, I suspect this replicates the views of the Saturn system in visible light, hence<br />Titan will appear like a smoggy orange ball.<br /><br />Andrew Brown. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080">"I suddenly noticed an anomaly to the left of Io, just off the rim of that world.

Hi Andrew,<br /><br />for Titan, the "visible color" of the surface, although in shades of orange, should include more contrasted albdeo marks (remember Huygens' pictures during descent), and the polar lakes...
