NASA - Pioneer 11 Image of Saturn and Its Moon Titan The Pioneer 11 spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral forty years ago, on April 5, 1973. IT's path through Saturn's outer rings took it within 21,000 km of the planet, where it discovered two new moons (almost smacking into one of them in September 1979) and a new "F" ring. This image shows Saturn and its planet-sized moon, Titan which was found to be too cold to support life (Pioneer was 1,768,422 miles from Saturn in this image.)
