I remember crying watching this video in 2017. On Sept. 15, 2017, the Cassini spacecraft made a fateful plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere, ending the mission just one month shy of its 20th launch anniversary. Video taken from National geographic channel on YouTube.


Thanks for posting. This is the first time I’ve seen this having missed it back in 2017.


Graves. Thee well space traveler. Well done. You are home now and in our memories.


Thanks for sharing! I’d not seen it before. I got emotional watching it! When Mars Rover Opportunity’s mission came to an end, I cried then too 😅


Did we learn anything from the final plunge?
