How to Watch Cassini's Grand Finale at Saturn (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by Theresa @, Wednesday, September 13, 2017, 18:34

The end is nigh: On Friday, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft will send its last messages back home as it plummets through Saturn’s atmosphere until it is ultimately ripped apart. This death dive marks the final phase of a 13-year mission exploring the ringed planet and its bevy of moons.

Cassini will beam back images until Thursday night, and it will keep pinging us with its position until the wee hours of Friday morning, when its antenna will turn away from Earth for the last time. (See our favorite pictures from Cassini’s mission to Saturn.)
