Cassini to make final observation of Saturn (Relevant for GS Prelims, GS Mains Paper III)

About Cassini
After studying Saturn, its rings and moons for more than 12 years, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has entered the final year of its epic voyage during which it will make the closest-ever observations of the planet.

Cassini’s final phase, called the Grand Finale, begins in earnest in April next year. A close flyby of Saturn’s giant moon Titan will reshape the spacecraft’s orbit so that it passes through the gap between Saturn and the rings, an unexplored space only about 2,400 kilometres wide. 

The conclusion of the historic scientific odyssey is planned for September next year.
