Tomorrow (Sept 15th) The Cassini Spacecraft will end its trip after 20 years in space and will dive into Saturn ending a 15 year tour of the ringed planet and it’s moons!
The Cassini arrived at Saturn in 2004 after a 7 year journey through the solar system..
It’s fuel is nearly almost gone and must be destroyed… so dramatic! Check out the video of Cassini’s journey and tell me you don’t think it’s a tad poetic…or maybe I’m just really really nerding out right now 🙂
You can also check out the 100 photos of Cassini’s journey below!
Thank You Cassini for teaching us so much about Saturn and it’s moons…you really are going out with a bang 😉
