Front row seat to Saturn

For almost 13 years, the spacecraft Cassini has been in the Saturn system, documenting the planet and its moons. Cassini’s days are numbered — on 15 September, it will be sent hurtling towards Saturn. But just because it’s running out of fuel doesn’t mean it’s running out of fire. Cassini has a lot more science to do in its final, riskiest chapter.

I made a web video on the subject for PBS NOVA and I was interviewed about it on PRI’s The World (see below for both). Also, here’s an article my colleague at NOVA, Allison Eck, wrote on the subject.
