Cassini: A 20-Year Voyage

Andy Poniros, NASA Solar System Ambassador

Due to the amount of fuel that NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has in reserve, the Cassini mission will end on Sept 15th with the spacecraft plunging into Saturn’s atmosphere, sending back valuable data bask to the Earth, and eventually succumbing to Saturn’s the intense atmospheric pressure to become part of the planet.

Using breathtaking images taken by the Cassini Spacecraft, Andy Poniros NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, amateur astronomer and radio show host will discuss Cassini’s amazing discoveries of Saturn, its moons, and its rings, …and the spacecraft’s Grand Finale orbits.
