Cassini at Saturn – The End of an Era

Speaker:  Professor Carl Murray,  Queen Mary  University of London

The Cassini spacecraft orbited the ringed planet Saturn for 13 years before ending its mission in September 2017 by plunging into the planet’s atmosphere. This talk will highlight some of Cassini’s remarkable observations, including the discovery of plumes of ice particles emanating from a source of liquid water beneath the moon Enceladus. The last part of the talk will focus on Cassini’s discoveries about the planet’s vast ring system.
