NASA's Cassini spacecraft sends first images from Saturn rings dive

Montez Delgado | 28 Abril, 2017, 21:37

To ensure the probe does not someday crash into a moon like Enceladus, where a subsurface ocean may provide an abode for life, NASA managers chose to put Cassini on a trajectory that will culminate in a mission-ending plunge into Saturn's atmosphere on September 15. Along with its successful dive came a set of historic photos of Saturn for many to marvel at.

Cassini was out of radio contact with Earth as it became the first spacecraft to enter the gap between Saturn and its rings.

As its mission comes to an end, NASA's Cassini spacecraft has revealed incredible images of Saturn, the closest we have ever seen.

On its trip, Cassini photographed the turbulent upper atmosphere, capturing images of a vast circular storm and the clouds that form on the outer layer of the planet. At its lowest point, Cassini will pass inside Saturn's innermost rings, skimming the top of the gas giant's atmosphere. The view was captured by the spacecraft during its first Grand Finale dive past the gas giant on April 26, 2017. Still, Cassini has 21 more dives to perform, and it's very likely that each one will send back more images that will bring not just a gold mine of data for space research but also a wonder to many.

"We're in a waiting period right now", said Jim Green, director of NASA's planetary science division. The craft cruised through its targeted space at speeds around 77,000 miles per hour, relative to the surface of the planet, and NASA notes that even the smallest particles could have spelled utter doom for the hardware if it was hit in the wrong spot.

No, not a black hole but an unprocessed image showing features in Saturn's atmosphere from closer than ever before.

The rings of Saturn are composed of dust, pebbles and boulders. "From an engineering point, we as humans have learned how to navigate and fly around the massive planet of Saturn, which provides key information on how to fly to and around other planets. We could only rely on predictions, based on our experience with Saturn's other rings, of what we thought this gap between the rings and Saturn would be like", said Cassini Project Manager Earl Maize of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, in a statement.

Called the "Grand Finale", the mission's goal is to squeeze as many discoveries as possible out of 22 extremely close and unprecedented flybys of Saturn and its rings.
