NASA’s Cassini mission launched in 1997 and has been exploring the Saturnian system from orbit since July 2004. Currently in its second extended mission, Cassini continues to unravel mysteries about Saturn and its atmosphere, rings and magnetosphere, and its moons, particularly Titan and the icy satellites.
The app was designed to give an overview of the spacecraft’s current activities, starting with the latest dramatic images. These images range from sublime insights into another ‘set of worlds,’ considering the moon Titan itself has been called the most earth-like body in our solar system. Also included in the app is the ‘Present Position’ of the spacecraft, as well as a countdown to the next major event – usually a spectacular targeted flyby of one of Saturn’s moons. At each stage, more in-depth information is only a click away.
God bless NASA for their Great work!
Thanks to JPL for this magnificent application of the spacecraft Cassini! This will keep Cassini's lovers up to date on the latest downlinks from our distant neighbor and Solar System's jewel, Saturn (Kronos) and it's Moons! Keep up the great work, and when possible create an app for the Mars Exploration Rover as well. Best Regards from Phoenix, Arizona.
Accurate data; simple, usable interface
Now I can check in real time how much until the next encounter!
Keep up the great science!
Thanks for making Cassini results & info easily accessible!
