Goodbye, Cassini’s last science data and final signal will come down to Earth.
Cassini is an unmanned spacecraft sent to the planet Saturn. It is a Flagship-class NASA–ESA–ASI robotic spacecraft. Cassini is the fourth space probe to visit Saturn and the first to enter orbit. It has studied the planet and its many natural satellites since arriving there in 2004. The Cassini mission will end with the spacecraft crashing into Saturn’s atmosphere.
