    NASA’s Cassini spacecraft was in service for 20 years, 13 of which it spent orbiting the Saturn system.

    After successfully completing its two missions, the spacecraft was recently retired by being sent to its demise by way of diving into Saturn’s atmosphere and tearing apart.

    Cassini’s legacy will certainly live on as it gave us more knowledge about Saturn’s moons, mapped the planet’s rings and giant storms, and took numerous marvellous photos during its voyage.
