Destined to Crash: Cassini’s Grand Finale

Pasadena, California, United States

The Cassini Mission at Saturn has been one of the most exciting and successful in the history of planetary science. Now it is about to come to a climatic end as it plunges into the great ringed world. KPCC/Southern California Public Radio has teamed with the Planetary Society for a public celebration on Monday evening, September 18th, just three days after the grand finale. Join KPCC science reporter Jacob Margolis and the Planetary Society’s Mat Kaplan at Caltech for a triumphant look back. Margolis will take guests on a storytelling adventure through Cassini’s mission — its perilous swings past gas giants, icy rings and moons that carry the precursors for life. Kaplan will lead an onstage discussion with some of the JPL scientists and engineers who have led the project since the 1980s. Planetary Society Senior Editor Emily Lakdawalla will contribute her unique insights.
