NASA's Cassini Probe Travels Between Saturn and its Rings

Cassini is beginning its Grand Finale in style. It passed within 600 miles of Saturn's moon Titan, and now it's entering into a death spiral as it gets closer and closer to crashing into the surface of Saturn in late September. The photography we'll get between now and then should be phenomenal!

For updates on Cassini, be sure to follow @CassiniSaturn on Twitter. And for a Twitter bot that is sad about Cassini ending, follow @CassiniNooo. It's hilarious.

Cassini will perform another 21 dives through the same gap, beaming back more information about the planet and its beautiful rings, before plunging into Saturn itself to burn up in its atmosphere
