Goodbye to Cassini satellite

The Cassini probe satellite will lose connection with the NASA engineers this Friday, after passing the atmosphere of Saturn. Engineers will commemorate the craft’s thirteen years of space probe with some final discoveries on the ringed planet.

The satellite, known for its path breaking discoveries on Saturn, will become obsolete about 6 seconds after 04:55 California’s local time.

The NASA engineers are hoping to receive a signal for as long as possible before the probe loses contact, and ventures into deep dark space. According to the team, antennas on Earth will lose contact on 11:55:06 GMT (12:44:06 BST)

The event in space will occur 83 minutes earlier due to the finite speed of light, and its 1.4 billion km distance to Saturn.

Earl Maize, a NASA Project manager, said the spacecraft’s final signal will be akin to an echo. The waves will radiate across the Solar System for about an hour and half after Cassini leaves.

“Despite Cassini meeting its fate in Saturn, the mission will not be over on Earth as long as the team will still be receiving its signals,” Maize added.

Cassini is in its final stages of collecting the last moment pictures of the Saturn System.

The probe’s discovery is leaving the scientists baffled with the views of the moon, Enceladus and Titan, which harbor volumes of liquid water underneath their icy surfaces.

According to Linda Spilker, a NASA project scientist, Cassini will venture into the dark side of the Saturn, and look in the near-infrared and ultraviolet areas for some final images of the ringed planet.

All images will be relayed straight to the Earth, and the cameras will be switched off before losing final contact with the probe.

According to the engineers, Cassini has valuable information of the existence of life beyond earth.

The Cassini scientists will be working on launching a new and sturdy spacecraft systems for space probes.

On September 18, BBC will broadcast a documentary showcasing Cassini’s final hours on the ringed planet.

Meanwhile, the engineers are working on a mission to Jupiter’s moons, Europa and Ganymede.
