Titan

Goodbye to Cassini

By Dr. Lisa Will

On Friday, September 15, 2017, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft will end its long mission by plunging into Saturn. Cassini was launched in 1997 and arrived at Saturn in 2004. It was the first spacecraft to go into orbit around Saturn and has sent back spectacular data that has vastly expanded our knowledge of Saturn, its rings and its moons.

Some of Cassini’s accomplishments include:

·         Landing the European Space Agency’s Huygens probe on Titan.

·         Discovering the water ice plumes of Enceladus.
