Dear Friends and Colleagues,
And so begins the end…
Cassini’s very last targeted flyby of Saturn’s moon, Rhea, occurred this past weekend, and images from that event are now on the ground and available for your discerning examination at …

Take a good, long, luxurious look at these sights from another world, as they will be the last close-ups you’ll ever see of this particular moon.
Our mission at Saturn has been ongoing for nearly 9 years and is slated to continue for another 4. Targeted flybys of the moons Dione, in June and August of 2015, and Enceladus, in October and December of 2015, are all that remains on the docket for detailed exploration of Saturn’s medium-sized moons.
We’re nearing the end of this historic expedition. Let’s enjoy the finale while we can.
Best,
Carolyn ...
