NASA's Cassini probe is located in the orbit of the planet Saturn. He arrived in June 2004 and, in addition to the planet, is closely studying the moons of the planet. In July it was the turn of the eighth largest moon, Hiperion. It is an irregular satellite of 300 kilometers of length that presents a spongy aspect seen closely. The NASA probe has been approximately 75 kilometers to take photos and, to the extent possible, analyze the chemical composition of the moon. Astronomers have found ice, carbon dioxide, and other unidentified compounds on the surface of the satellite.
