"One of the many moons of Saturn that is (sadly) ignored amongst scientists.

Compared to the other two images, Dione would be easier to circulate around and deciphering the layout. lt's just pure substance. Yeah, it's the smallest of the three targets, but BIGGER Isn't BETTER.

There is probably more on Mercury to know than there is on Jupiter, we just can't get close enough to figure out what it is before being cooked by the sun. lt can be determined that Dione has much to be discovered, though being the underdog in this contest. Think about all that rock-like ice that needs to be examined ! lf you must, sleep on it that Dione is your next destination for the probe.

Besides, we already have enough information about Saturn, and laeptus looks hard to figure out due to the formation of the surface and the disorganized resources. You would have easy patience observing and analysing due to the predictable orbit patterns as it speeds up or slows down around Saturn. This gives the probe time to snap pictures and feedback to NASA as they try and exclaim what's going on. The necessity of this potential mission has a high chance to demonstrate the future of modern analysis.

The position of the craters, the brightness of the actual surface, and the depth of the satellite can't be denied. The only reason why l'm not telling you factoids about the moon itself (which I assume most of these essays will enquire) is because of one sole reason - I don't want to bore you with information you probably already know, that's not the purpose of this writing assignment. Therefore, I try my best to persuade you while still being truthful to the cause. Anyways, back on topic. If you hadn't noticed this moon behaves in a way that's similar to our moon, which we already know a plethora about it.(e.g - Dione only faces one side towards its planet, Saturn). This might seem like a contradiction to the "factoid" problem I've just explained, but it's more than you would think.

By saying the similarities between the two moons, it's an implication that scientists would be more comfortable with studying something they are already so familiar with. Would you rather be with the same reliable cable company you've been with your whole life or just move on to another one you've seen in a random infomercial. I guess that's debatable, but what would make you switch?

lf that infomercial REALLY convinced you and had very influential material behind it, that's reasonable. It's kind of the same method I'm trying to use against you. The Cassini probe should be on-route to something that has a huge probability of promise. According to NASA, the next flyby trek for the probe is apparently heading towards Titan. While you work on it, I plead you to think about what I have just listed, than decide if it's essential or just another pointless 'rant' "
