The Most Epic NASA Space Mission! First Real Images Of Saturn
The approximate radius of the solar system is 30 trillion kilometers. During the whole time of exploration of this space, mankind has found 316 minor planets. And 8 main ones that everyone knows about.
But “know” is too big a word. In most cases, we only know what these planets look like and at what distance they are from the Earth. Everything else is just our assumptions. To replace speculation with facts, humanity regularly sends space research probes to other planets.
One of the most significant and truly epochal missions was « Cassini-Huygens », the purpose of which was to study Saturn and its satellites. Namely – the search for answers to the questions: « What threat are the rings of Saturn? » « What does the surface of the planet actually look like? » and, most interestingly, “Is life possible there?”
