After over 10 years in orbit around Saturn, the Cassini spacecraft will end its mission exploring Saturn on September 15, 2017 by purposefully entering the planet’s atmosphere. Before it’s destroyed it will send back information from that and other daring trips around Saturn. Come explore one of the most beautiful sights in our solar system in this production and afterwards learn about the most up-to-date information sent back during the final months of the Cassini mission.
