Mission Saturn – Maps of Saturn’s | Input from more than NASA members about Cassini named as Cassini Grand Finale, It collects valuable information of original planners might never have imagined. It will make detailed maps of Saturn’s gravity and magnetic fields. This is great news for our knowledge of Saturn!

End of the mission!
The 13-year mission of Cassini, the Saturn exploration vehicle of the American Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), ended when it was thured to the surface of Saturn.
Cassini, who was scheduled to make 22 dives through the Saturn rings in 2001. It was on his way to his final mission, and burned to the post in Saturn’s atmosphere after his 22nd dive.
Cassini made its final dive towards Saturn’s surface and the spacecraft’s signal disappeared at 05.55 California local time (14.55 A.M.) at the Cassini Mission Control Center, NASA said in a statement.
It was reported that only 1 minute was found between the first moments of the dive and Cassini sending its final signal.
Cassini, which has been in business for 13 years at a cost of $4 billion, was described as a “goodbye kiss”. When it came close to Saturn’s moon Titan. While NASA said the farewell would be held at 122,000 km per hour.
Cassini, which has obtained a lot of data on both the rings and saturn’s upper surface through its 22 dives. It is expected to be on the record until the time. It hits Saturn and transfers a lot of new information with data closest to the planet.
This is the first time the atmosphere has been approached. So it will be clear exactly where the final signal will come from. When it enters the atmosphere, the antenna will head upwards towards Earth. So Cassini can tell us what he saw last time before he died.
