Cassini: Epic Journey to Saturn
September 22, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM PDTFree
After more than 12 years studying Saturn, its rings and moons, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has entered the final year of its epic voyage. The conclusion of the historic scientific odyssey is planned for September 2017, but not before the spacecraft completes a daring two-part endgame.
This public talk will present highlights of Cassini’s ambitious inquiry at Saturn and an overview of science observations in the final orbits as well as discuss Cassini’s exciting challenges and promise of the final year of the mission, ultimately flying through a region where no spacecraft has ever flown before.
