Cassini" came to a trajectory of collision with Saturn - RIA Novosti, 9/12/2017
MOSCOW, 12 Sep – RIA Novosti. Last night the probe "Cassini" has approached the Titan, has made the last gravitational maneuver and came to a direct trajectory of collision with Saturn in which atmosphere he will burn down on Friday, NASA reports. "It is possible to tell that Cassini maintained very long relations with this moon of Saturn, meeting it approximately once a month on an extent of more than 10 years. Their last rendezvous causes the mixed feelings, but, despite this parting, the right Titan last time will help the probe to come to a new orbit" — Earl Maize, the mission manager of Cassini in NASA tells. © NASA/JPL-Caltechfinal of the opera of Cassini: why NASA in a week "will kill" the probe-veteranzhizn "Cassini" will break very soon – last week it has begun the last, 22nd round around Saturn within the last stage of a mission which has received the name "Opera Final". In five days, on September 15 this year, the probe of NASA will enter dense beds of the atmosphere of Saturn and will burn down, transferring at the same time information on the device of his subsoil to Earth. Having received the last photos of rings of Saturn, Cassini I have last time approached last night the Titan whose attraction will change a trajectory of flight of the probe and will send him to the last rendezvous with "Lord of the Rings". Specialists of NASA called this gravitational maneuver "a farewell kiss" as after him will change nothing to the fate of Cassini any more. © NASA/JPL of "Cassini" Saturnakak has encountered inexplicable anomaly of magnetic field notes NASA, the probe has flown by at distance in about 119 kilometers over the surface of Titanium, having received farewell pictures and having collected the latest data on the device of his atmosphere and surface. This information and also the remains of other scientific data will be transferred to Earth in the nearest future and memory of Cassini will be cleaned before it begins last "dive" in the atmosphere of Saturn. Tomorrow some Cassini tools will begin to work in such a way that information collected by them will be told to Earth in real time that will allow the message probe scientific observations actually till the moment of his death. As scientists expect, this sad event will take place next Friday, approximately at 3 o'clock in the afternoon across Moscow.
