NASA Cassini craft to make final pass by Saturn's odd-shaped Hyperion moon

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON, May 30 (UPI) -- Launched from Earth nearly 20 years ago, NASA's Cassini spacecraft will make its final close proximity flyby of Saturn's moon Hyperion on Sunday -- coming within 19,000 nautical miles of the ringed planet's irregularly-shaped satellite.

The galactic encounter will occur at about 9:30 a.m. EDT Sunday and images will be transmitted back to Earth between 24 and 48 hours later, NASA said.

 

Engineers hope the Cassini craft will be able to photograph Hyperion's surface with greater detail than ever before. The oval-shaped moon's chaotic rotation is unpredictable, however, which makes it difficult for scientists to anticipate which parts of the moon will present itself to Cassini's camera.

The technology is 20 years old and most likely will not be of high quality, but even
if it was/is high quality, they'll blurr everything out if there's something they don't
want you to see!

Storm, on your advert blog, get rid of the blue lettering. I can
barely see and read it.
