Been reading more about Cassini this past week and been fascinated with its timeline and achievements. To think that it took off back on Oct 15, 1997 – just as I was entering my final year of undergrad. Fight Club was the top movie in theaters and Puff Daddy – not P Diddy – was dominating radio play with multiple hits. Following the Cassini timeline got me reflective about the past 20 years, mirroring its achievements with what I was doing at the time. Amazing to think it took 7 years traveling nonstop just to get TO Saturn’s orbit!
I totally recommend checking out the Cassini timeline on JPL’s website. You’ll see some incredible photos sent back from space – including the time it flew just 16 miles from Saturn’s moon, Enceladus!
