Cassini photographed Saturn's moon Iapetus and discovered its contrasting properties. The spacecraft also completed its 8th dive between Saturn and its rings.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft tried to protect itself from debris during its dive, however, it turned out that the region is dust-free. During the dive, instruments aboard the spacecraft also recorded the sound during the dive.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft photographed Saturn's rings in a close distance. The newly released images showed features of the rings with unprecedented details.
The Cassini mission captured a never before seen image of Saturn's hexagon-shaped streaming jets of storm on the Northern tip of Saturn. The image was taken while the tip of the planet was illuminated by sunlight.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft sent back data from its first orbit and will continue to complete its mission of 20 orbits. The data from the orbits will help researchers further understand if Saturn's moons are indeed younger than previously thought.
