Weekly Space Hangout: Feb 13, 2019: Luciano Iess of the Cassini Radio Science Team
We record the Weekly Space Hangout every Wednesday at 5:00 pm Pacific / 8:00 pm Eastern. You can watch us live on Universe Today or the Weekly Space Hangout YouTube page. Luciano Iess, professor of Aerospace Engineering at Sapienza University of Rome, is a member of the Cassini radio science team that recently determined, after analyzing gravity science data collected during the final orbits of Cassini around Saturn, that its iconic rings are a relatively young feature of the planet. You can read more about this and the teams other exciting discoveries online at the following sites: ► https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2019/01/missions-expose-surprising-differences-interiors-saturn-and-jupiter ► https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?feature=7315 The Weekly Space Hangout is a production of CosmoQuest.

OTD in Space - Dec. 31: Cassini Spacecraft Flies by Iapetus
On Dec. 31, 2004, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft flew by Iapetus, Saturn’s third largest moon. Iapetus was discovered by the Italian astronomer Giovanni Cassini in 1671. NASA’s Cassini craft flew by the moon multiple times while it was in orbit around Saturn. This was the first close flyby of Iapetus, and Cassini came within 77,000 miles of its surface. NASA's Deep Space Network received the first data from Cassini's flyby on New Year's Eve at 11:47 p.m. Pacific Time. The Cassini Orbiter captured incredible, up-close images of Iapetus. The images revealed that Iapetus kind of looks like a yin-yang symbol. One hemisphere is as dark as coal, but the other is much brighter. This earned it the nickname "the yin-yang moon." Cassini also discovered a huge ridge that runs along the equator, which earned it a second nickname: the "walnut moon."
OTD in Space - Oct. 26: Cassini Spacecraft Takes 1st Closeups of Titan
On October 26, 2004, NASA's Cassini spacecraft took the first close-up images of Saturn's largest moon Titan. The Cassini spacecraft would later drop off a probe on Titan named Huygens, which was a European spacecraft that hitched a ride to the Saturn system with the Cassini mission. But before Cassini dropped off its robotic passenger, it flew by Titan a few times and took some amazing photos. Cassini completed its first flyby on July 3, 2004, but when it swung by a second time on October 26, it got about 300 times closer than it did the first time. At the closest point of this flyby, Cassini was 745 miles away from the surface of Titan. The spacecraft took hundreds of photos during this flyby, and these were the highest resolution views of Titan anyone had ever seen.
OTD in Space - Oct. 15: Cassini-Huygens Launches to Saturn
On Oct. 15, 1997, NASA launched the Cassini spacecraft on a mission to explore Saturn and its moons. It took almost 7 years for Cassini to reach Saturn. Another smaller spacecraft called Huygens hitched a ride with Cassini, and it was dropped off at Saturn's moon Titan in 2005. Cassini spent 13 years studying the Saturn system up close, and the mission lasted about 20 years before coming to an epic grand finale on Sept. 15, 2017. Running low on fuel, NASA chose to steer Cassini straight into Saturn's atmosphere, where the spacecraft was destroyed.
NASA Mission Control 360 Live: Cassini’s Finale at Saturn
From the live coverage at 4am PDT on Sept. 15. Go behind the scenes in a 360-degree view inside mission control (with embedded commentary) to see the team await the FINAL signal and science data until the very last moment from our Cassini spacecraft. After nearly 20 years in space, NASA's Cassini mission to Saturn is at the end of its remarkable journey of exploration. The final minutes of the spacecraft, at it enters the atmosphere, begin at 55:48. Project manager Earl Maize calls end of mission at 59:10.

Skylight: Saturn Shows Off Its Rings
Saturn’s rings are captivating from any vantage point, but more so when tilted fully towards or away from Earth, as they are this October. Our understanding of Saturn, its rings, and its moons has been enriched over the past 13 years through the Cassini mission, which ended in September.

NSN Webinar Cassini End of Mission
NSN members joined us on Wednesday, September 20 when Trina Ray from NASA's JPL updated us on the end of the Cassini mission to Saturn. Cassini’s Grand Finale: The end of a fantastic mission. The international Cassini-Huygens spacecraft was launched on October 15, 1997 and had a marathon 7-year 2-billion-mile journey to the distant planet Saturn. The 23-foot tall, 14-foot wide, 6-ton spacecraft is the largest most sophisticated outer planet spacecraft ever built, and is at the end of its thirteenth year of operation in orbit around the planet Saturn. This talk will briefly cover an overview of the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn, but will focus on the exciting Grand Finale (the last 22 orbits of the mission where the spacecraft has been flying inside the rings – right over Saturn’s cloud tops). Participants found out about what happened during the Cassini Grand Finale. About Trina Ray: Trina Ray received a B.S. in physics/astronomy option from Cal State Northridge and her master's degree in astronomy from San Diego State University. She has held many positions on Cassini during her 21 years on the mission, including instrument operations engineer, science system engineer, and currently as Cassini's Science Planning and Sequencing Team deputy and the Titan Orbiter Science Team co-chair. She was one of the key strategic planners of the Grand Finale Mission.
Cassini: Mission of Exploration
NASA's Cassini spacecraft made its final approach to Saturn and dove into the planet’s atmosphere on Friday, Sept. 15, 2017 but the science provided by this enduring spacecraft will live on.

After an historic mission lasting 20 years -- including 13 years of ground breaking scientific observations of the majestic ringed world of Saturn and its many moons –Cassini’s journey of exploration has come to an end. On September 15 at 9:53 in the evening Australian Eastern Standard Time – after a five minute roll manoeuvre -- Cassini began its suicidal death plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere -- triggering the ultimate demise of the spacecraft.
*New Horizons wakes up from hibernation
NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has successfully woken from hibernation as it continues its marathon mission to the distant Kuiper Belt object 2014 MU69. Mission managers at the Johns Hopkins University in Laurel, Maryland say the 480 kilogram probe woke up from its five month hibernation period in good health and operating normally, with all systems coming back online as expected.
*Possible discovery of intermediate sized Black Holes
Astronomers have found strong evidence for the existence of an intermediate sized black hole hidden deep inside a massive gas cloud cluster near the centre of the Milky Way. The discovery could explain how supermassive black holes are formed in the hearts of galaxies.
*The most powerful solar flare of the current solar cycle
The most powerful solar flare of the current solar cycle has just erupted on the surface of the Sun. The event was one of a series of powerful explosions generating geomagnetic storms which were produced by the same active region of the Sun’s surface.

Cassini scientist Michele Dougherty (Imperial College London) on the mission's grand finale
As the international Cassini mission comes to a spectacular end, Michele Dougherty, principal investigator for the Cassini magnetometer and professor at Imperial College in London, discusses the 13 year mission and the grand finale. Michele tells us how she got involved with the Cassini mission, why Titan is the most important of Saturn's many moons and how a four year mission was eventually able to last 13 years.
