Best Cassini probe pictures.
« on: October 18, 2015, 08:37:18 pm »
With all the new pictures coming from new space probes out there, & the New Horizons Pluto pictures, we tend to forget we have lots other probes out there doing science & taking pictures every day.

The nuclear powered spacecraft Cassini is still 100% functional, orbiting Saturn, & snapping images of Saturn & its moons.

Launched in 1997, it got a gravity/speed boost by a close flyby of Venus in 1998. After passing by Jupiter, it arrived in orbit around Saturn in June 2004. It is a dual-probe which launched its Huygens probe into Titan's atmosphere in December 2004.

It takes 84 minutes for radio signals from Cassini at the speed of light to reach Earth. As far away as Saturn is, that's nothing compared to the New Horizons probe that flew by Pluto. It takes 9 hours for radio signals to reach earth from Pluto.

Here's my favorite Cassini pictures. Many of them won't be seen in such clarity & detail anywhere else because they were specially enhanced by me & my exclusive homemade imaging software. Bigger pictures don't matter if they're blurry.

Enjoy Astro Fans!
