Cassini spacecraft's amazing photos of Saturn, rings & moons

SeattlePI.com Tuesday, 12 September 2017 ()
Until Cassini's arrival at Saturn in 2004, humanity had never viewed Saturn up close and personal. In all, Cassini has provided more than 453,000 pictures of the Saturn, its rings and moons. The final snapshots will be coming down hours before the spacecraft's fiery finish on Friday. Cassini will burn up like a meteor in Saturn's sky. "These final images are sort of like taking a last look around your house or apartment just before you move out," said project scientist Linda Spilker of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. "You walk around the downstairs, as you go upstairs, you run your fingers along the banister, you look at your old room and memories across the years come flooding back.
