«Кассини» был запущен в 1997 году, а в середине 2004 года достиг Сатурна и приступил к его изучению. За долее чем 13 лет своей работы «Кассини» позволил больше узнать с погоде, смене сезонов и полярных сияниях на газовом гиганте, а также получил ряд косвенных доказательств, что его спутник Энцелад может быть пригоден для жизни.

Ещё одним немаловажным событием, произошедшим в рамках миссии, стала посадка на Титан, ещё один спутник Сатурна, спускаемого зонда «Гюйгенс», запущенный вместе с «Кассини» и упоминаемый в полном названии миссии. Данный зонд, в том числе, позволил подтвердить наличие на Титане «водоёмов» из метана.

Заключительный этап миссии,стартовал в апреле прошлого года. Он получил название Grand Finale («Финал оперы»). На английском языке это словосочетание, часто применяемое для обозначения заключительной части представления, в «буквальном» смысле его можно перевести как «грандиозный финал». На финальном этапе своей миссии, космический аппарат позволил уточнить толщину знаменитых колец планеты. В сентябре станция «Кассини» сгорела в атмосфере.

Решение «утопить» спутник в атмосфере Сатурна было продиктовано, в первую очередь, двумя мотивами — во-первых, специалисты не хотели, чтобы «Кассини» случайно врезался в какой-либо из потенциально обитаемых спутников планеты, «загрязнив» их земными микроорганизмами, а во-вторых, сама по себе возможность взглянуть на газовый гигант «вблизи» учёных интриговала.

Снимки, сделанные незадолго до крушения, можно увидеть на сайте американского аэрокосмического агентства.
