Summary "With its shimmering pink rings intertwined with gray and brown ones, Saturn is considered by many people to be the most beautiful planet in the solar system. It is also one of the most mysterious. In 1982, astronomers and scientists from the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Italian Space Agency (ATI) proposed a joint mission to send unmanned spacecraft to explore Saturn and its moons in an effort to reveal some of these mysteries. It was named Cassini-Huygens to honor pioneering astronomers Giovanni Domenico Cassini and Christiaan Huygens, who carried out pioneering observations of Saturn more than 300 years ago. The mission generated vast quantities of invaluable data and astounding images. This book tells the exciting story of the Cassini-Huygens Mission, from its inception to the final plunge into the atmosphere of Saturn in 2017."-- Provided by publisher.
