The Cassini spacecraft was destroyed into Saturn atmosphere after more than 13 years orbiting the planet. A selection of 100 wonderful pictures of the mission was published by NYT. In his time in Saturn’s orbit Cassini found liquid methane-ethane lakes in Titan (1-100 km width) and water-rich jets coming out of Enceladus south pole, among other discoveries. We will miss the robot.
Below a diagram of Titan’s atmospheric chemistry and Enceladus’ jets.
