Only 21 days after T9, Cassini returns to Titan for its eleventh targeted encounter: T10. The closest approach to Titan occurs on Sunday, 15 January, at 11:41 UT at an altitude of 2043 km above the surface and at a speed of 5.8 kilometres per second. The latitude at closest approach is 0°(equator) and the encounter occurs on orbit number 20.

Over the past five years, a series of discoveries by the multi-spacecraft Cluster mission have significantly enhanced our knowledge of how, where and under which conditions killer electrons are created in the Earth's magnetospheric environment. During intense magnetic storms (driven by enhanced solar activity) highly energetic electrons (the so-called killer electrons) are often responsible for permanently damaging satellites and pose a serious hazard to astronauts.
