On Sept. 15, 2017, the Cassini spacecraft will make a fateful plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere, ending the mission just one month shy of its 20th launch anniversary. On the final orbit, Cassini will plunge into Saturn fighting to keep its antenna pointed at Earth as it transmits its farewell. In the skies of Saturn, the journey ends, as Cassini becomes part of the planet itself.  People use the word awesome or extraordinary all the time! But this, this is!!! I mean,  giant ice geysers, rings with “spokes” and “waves”, hurricane-like mega storms, subsurface oceans, methane “water” cycles,  62 moons with the potential to harbor life, and of course all these incredible images of one of the most beautiful planets in our solar system This is exactly the way I feel.  Click this and you will not believe these photos are real! But they are.
