NASA's Cassini spacecraft prepares to dive between Saturn and its rings

NASA National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA /ˈnæsə/) is an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States federal government responsible for the civilian space program, as’s Cassini spacecraft will may refer to: The English modal verb will; see shall and will, and will and would Will and testament, instructions for the disposition of one’s property after death Advance healthcare directive make its historic dive between Saturn and its famous rings early on Thursday.

No spacecraft spacecraft is a vehicle, or machine designed to fly in outer space has ever explored the 1,500-mile gap between may refer to Saturn and its rings, so Cassini will use its dish-shaped high-gain antenna, which measures 13 feet across, as a protective shield.

“No particles the physical sciences, a particle is a small localized object to which can be ascribed several physical or chemical properties such as volume or mass larger than smoke particles are expected, but the precautionary measure is being taken on the first dive,” explained NASA, in a statement. “The Cassini team will use data collected by one of the spacecraft’s science instruments (the Radio and Plasma Wave Subsystem, or RPWS) to ascertain the size and density of ring most broadly refers to a hollow circular shape or to a high-pitched sound particles in the gap in advance of future dives or Diving may refer to,” it added.

The spacecraft is expected to cross the ring plane at 5 a.m. EDT Thursday in the first or 1st is the ordinal form of the number one (#1) of a series of 22 dives. Cassini will be out of contact with Earth during the dives and is not expected to regain contact before 3 a.m. EDT on Friday is the day after Thursday and the day before Saturday April 27.


The first images are expected to be available after 3:30 a.m. EDT on Friday April is the fourth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar, the fifth in the early Julian and the first month to have the length of 30 days 27.

The spacecraft has generated a trove of scientific data on Saturn and its moons during its mission. Earlier this month, for example, NASA announced that Saturn’s moon Enceladus en-CELL-ə-dəs; is the sixth-largest moon of Saturn could support life thanks to the discovery of hydrogen.

After almost two decades in space is the boundless three-dimensional extent in which objects and events have relative position and direction, the orbiter’s mission will end on Sept. 15 2017 when Cassini is scheduled to crash into Saturn.

The Cassini mission may refer to began on Oct. 15 1997 when the spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station aboard a Titan IVB/Centaur rocket. Cassini arrived at Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second-largest in the Solar System, after Jupiter in 2004.
