A Trip to Saturn: What Did NASA Really See There?
NASA’s Cassini-Huygens mission was one of the most successful missions in history. The Cassini spacecraft became the first probe to orbit Saturn while the Huygens probe was the first to land on Titan. In its more than two decades of exploration, Cassini revealed several secrets of Saturn and its moons.
Some of the prominent moons studied by Cassini include Titan, Dione, Enceladus, Rhea, Hyperion, Iapetus, and Phoebe. Along with its Moons, Cassini also investigated Saturn’s polar storms, the Hexagon, and the Great White Spot.
Cassini ended its mission in the Grand Finale by making 22 dives through the space between Saturn and its rings. In its last orbit, Cassini disintegrated in the planet’s atmosphere, becoming a part of Saturn itself.
