Thrilling moment !!
@CassiniSaturn This is it! Through the gap between #Saturn and its rings. Instruments are on, but we’re out of contact with Earth. Here we goooooo!
Nobody’s ever plunged between Saturn and its rings … since Dan Dare ! In 1954 !
Fulfilling Frank Hampson’s space dream in 1954 … Cassini Saturn goes where Man has never ventured before !
Congratulations Cassini !!!
@CassiniSaturn We did it! Cassini is in contact with Earth and sending back data after a successful dive through the gap between Saturn and its rings.
