Last Images of Nasa’s legendary Spacecraft – Cassini

As NASA finally crashed it spacecraft Cassini revolving Saturn for 13 years and sending us valuable data to observe, Cassini sent its final images before turning into ash in Saturn’s atmosphere. In case you don’t know what in the world we are talking about here is a brief introduction.

Cassini started its journey in 1997, and after a long journey of 7 years from Earth it finally reached Saturn. Cassini used to revolve around Saturn and send images and data about its Moons, Rings and Saturn itself. But after 13 years of serving Humanity, Cassini had no fuel left to run so Nasa made a decision to crash it into Saturn’s atmosphere so that it won’t hurt any possible alien life in its Moons like TITAN and Enceladus. Visit here for a detailed day to day plan of how Nasa plan to disintegrate its beloved Spacecraft in Saturn.

So here are the final images Nasa issued from Cassini’s Farewell. Check them out
