Social media was stirring and very upset over the final mission of Cassi today.
NASA’s spacecraft will fly into Saturn and burn up in the planet’s atmosphere. It’s the final, mission after months orbiting in Saturn’s rings giving scientists a view.
Fans that have been following the spacecraft since it launched in 1997say it’s the “end of a mission that has revolutionized our understanding of Saturn and opened our eyes to two worlds that could be home to alien life — the moons Titan and Enceladus.”
