Cassini Grand Finale

Cassini arrived at Saturn in 2004, after a seven-year voyage. It was the first spacecraft to orbit the ringed planet. For 13 years, Cassini joined the intricate dance of Saturn’s 62 moons. After 22 passes inside the rings, Cassini will plow into Saturn’s rippled clouds today. The spacecraft will incinerate itself to prevent any future contamination of the moons Enceladus or Titan. Farewell Cassini, I’ll miss you.✨
