Fantastic cartography of Saturn's moon Dione.

Like the ancient cartographers of old, scientists working with images from Cassini-Huygens of Saturn's icy airless moons have carefully crafted detailed maps that one day may guide future explorers across the surfaces of these remote bodies.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency.

Large Dione
