The Cassini mission is in trouble.
The spacecraft has to go somewhere.
NASA’s spacecraft, which is carrying out the most extensive and ambitious exploration of Saturn’s atmosphere in its nearly 80-year history, is no longer able to reach Earth.
Its radio telescope, the Cassini-Huygens probe, is losing power and its onboard cameras are not operating.
The Cassino mission, launched in 2004, was the first of a series of missions to explore the Saturn system.
Its principal goal is to understand Saturn’s atmospheric composition and to find out how Saturn’s giant moons formed and where they came from.
The mission’s other principal goal was to determine whether a giant impact triggered the massive explosion that sent the moon into a ring and flung its rocky crust into space.
Cassini has spent nearly 17 years on Saturn’s icy moons, searching for evidence of these events.
Cassiopeia, Saturn’s largest moon, is one of the most spectacular and best-studied objects in the solar system.
It is surrounded by the largest moons of Saturn, including Enceladus and Titan, which together form a ring of icy, rocky, and gas-rich bodies called the ring system.
Cassin’s instruments are on the spacecraft’s surface.
Cassina is in orbit about Saturn, a world in which it has spent most of its life in orbit.
Its orbit is tilted slightly to the north and south.
Its closest approach to Saturn will occur in 2020, and its closest approach is about a third of the way into Cassini’s mission.
When Cassini reaches Saturn’s north pole, it will be at a distance of about 2,000 miles (3,000 kilometers) from its home in the planet’s atmosphere.
That’s a huge distance for a spacecraft, but it’s only about half of the distance between Earth and the Moon.
Cassino will travel at about the same speed.
Its two instruments, the Thermal Infrared Spectrometer (TIRS) and the Imaging Infrared Pathfinder (IIPI), are on its underside, which sits about a quarter of the length of its body.
Each instrument can measure wavelengths of light and heat from a range of wavelengths.
They can then be analyzed for radio and infrared signals.
The TIRS and IIPI are equipped with a high-resolution camera called the HiRISE camera, which has an imaging wavelength of 790 nanometers.
The instruments are designed to measure light emitted by the atmosphere of Saturn.
The temperature of the atmosphere at the north pole is about 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit (600 degrees Celsius).
It is about 2 million degrees Fahrenheit (~6 million degrees Celsius) at its equator.
The surface of Saturn is a very cold place.
That makes for an ideal habitat for an object that is traveling close to the surface of a planet.
Cassine is about two-thirds the size of Earth and is in Saturn’s shadow.
Cassinated material falls from the sky onto the planet, heating up the surface, heating the atmosphere, and melting it.
The heat is enough to melt rock, and it can also cause damage to the planet.
In addition to cooling the surface by melting, the heat also causes some material to be ejected into space from the planet or the rings.
When the TIR, IIPI, and Thermal Infra-Red (TI-IR) spectrometers read that material, they will be able to determine its composition.
Cassionis instruments will be on the surface and on the rings of Saturn when the spacecraft reaches Saturn.
Cassinos instruments are able to measure the infrared signature of the surface as well as infrared signatures of material ejected from the atmosphere.
They also can measure the chemical composition of the material ejected, as well the composition of ice that has been formed on the moons of the planet in the rings and moon’s atmosphere during the impact that triggered the ring formation.
Cassins instruments will read infrared signals from a region called the Ring Ring Ring, a ring system of icy satellites orbiting Saturn.
These satellites are the remnants of Saturn rings that were ejected from a giant meteor strike.
Scientists have found evidence that the rings were formed when the impact event occurred about 4 billion years ago.
In their study of the rings, scientists concluded that the ring formed by the impact would have been the first impact in the history of the solar System.
This ring system, which includes the icy moons Titan and Encelo, is made up mostly of methane, ammonia, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and other gases.
The ring is composed of small, irregularly shaped rings called geysers.
Scientists believe that when the rings formed, the rings separated from the gas giant and the planet and formed into a sphere.
These geyser rings are located on the outermost ring of Saturn called Ring A. The rings are a great way to study the behavior of Saturn and its moons.
Cassinas instruments will observe the rings’ behavior in the infrared and in the ultraviolet.
