This was the first week of the last year of the Cassini mission. Here's what happened:
We marked the official one year mark to Cassini's Grand Finale. It's a bittersweet milestone. Our team is excited about the science-packed year ahead:
- Story: "Cassini Begins Epic Final Year at Saturn"
- Video: "Staring at Saturn"
- Image: "Approaching Northern Summer"
- Infographic: "Cassini by the Numbers: 2016"
An nice batch of raw images came down featuring Saturn's Hexagon. Use the search filters to narrow the search down to 09-09-2016 see the hexagon batch: https://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/galleries/raw-images
Each Thursday, we publish Significant Events, the mission's diary. Read weekly updates from the mission dating back to 1997. Vist the Significant Events Library.
Feeling a little nostalgic, we looked back to one of our early mission posters published in 2001 - when the whole prime mission was still in front of us. The student mural used to create the cover art is spectacular: Cassini: Unvieling the Myth Poster
