Cassini photographed Saturn's moon Iapetus and discovered its contrasting properties. The spacecraft also completed its 8th dive between Saturn and its rings.
Cassini observes Saturn Solstice while preparing for its sixth ring-grazing. This only happens every 15 Earth years, experts say.
NASA converted images from Cassini's first dive into a movie sequence and it is nothing short of amazing, according to those who have seen it. The spacecraft also beamed back images of Saturn's moon Enceladus from a previous flyby.
Cassini captured the last image of Saturn's moon Mimas for its mission. The images captured were the best ever taken of the moon.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft photographed Saturn's rings in a close distance. The newly released images showed features of the rings with unprecedented details.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured an image of Saturn's moon Tethys that looked like an eyeball. The resemblance is due to the impact marks on the surface of the moon.
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.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft beams back images from the new orbit in Saturn's rings.
Cassini is running out of fuel and is near the end of its mission. But before it plunges to its death, it will first complete a series of ring dives that started last Nov. 30.
The Saturn Cassini Spacecraft is nearing the finale of its mission. Having already spent 12 years circling the ringed planet and the moons surrounding it, the spacecraft is ready to perform its daredevil stunt.
A stunning new photo by NASA's Cassini spacecraft has revealed the elaborate structure of Saturn's iconic rings. The rings of Saturn have charmed astronomers and stargazers for centuries.
Cassini's final year in observing the ringed planet Saturn and its moons has proven to be another colorful year. Recently, the spacecraft has seen the summer methane clouds on Saturn's moon Titan.
The changing colors of the 'hexagonal' pattern on the tip of Saturn baffles NASA scientists.
For Cassini's last hoorah, the spacecraft will pass through an unexplored space between Saturn and its rings and will make the closest-ever observations of Saturn, providing new precise insights into the planet's inner structures.
