The Grand Finale

Here is the preview of The Grand Finale or the end of the Cassini Mission. What you are seeing is the entire press announcement and you will get to hear great questions and answers.

The last phase begins in just a few weeks and ends after orbits between the inner rings and Saturn itself. What is in that gap? Could be a “white-knuckled” encounter or clear ride looking at the ring-plane or Saturn’s upper atmosphere very close up.

No matter, the Cassini mission sets the “remote planetary exploration bar” pretty high and especially when you think about this mission from the international teamwork and co-operative side of things. This is yet another example of what can be done when all involved work together, space sciences are really lucky in this respect and would seem to provide a good example to follow.
