Matthew S. Tiscareno, Senior Research Scientist at SETI, will share insights on the Cassini space probe’s 13-year exploration of Saturn.  

Dr. Tiscareno studies how things move (dynamics) in the solar system.  In many cases, he applies dynamical methods to Saturn’s rings and other planetary ring systems.  He is a Participating Scientist and an Imaging Team Associate for the Cassini spacecraft, which has been orbiting Saturn since 2004.  He is also involved with the James Webb Space Telescope, with efforts to send a spacecraft to Uranus and Neptune, and with other concepts for future space missions. He is the lead editor for the full-length technical book Planetary Ring Systems, which was published in 2017 by Cambridge University Press.
