Cassini moves inside Saturn’s rings

in Multimedia articles

THE NEW YORK TIMES – NASA’s Cassini spacecraft shifted its orbit around Saturn on Saturday, preparing to dive between the planet the hazes of Titan, the ringed planet’s biggest moon. Like a heavy hand, Titan’s gravity will reach out and pull Cassini onto a new path, downward into the narrow gap between Saturn and its innermost ring, where no human artifact has ever gone.

After 13 years in orbit, Cassini is set to burn up in Saturn’s atmosphere on Sept. 15.
