Monthly Society Meeting

The next VBAS Monthly Meeting is Friday, November 17 at 7:30 PM. Pizza at 7:00 PM.

Title: Cassini’s Grand Finale: The end of a fantastic mission.

Text: The international Cassini-Huygens spacecraft was launched on October 15, 1997 and had a marathon 7-year 2-billion-mile journey to the distant planet Saturn. The 23-foot tall, 14-foot wide, 6-ton spacecraft is the largest most sophisticated outer planet spacecraft ever built, and this past September it ended its mission to the planet Saturn. Please make plans to attend our monthly meeting on Friday November 17th. This will be a non interactive webinar. Join us as NASA's JPL's Trina Ray will briefly cover an overview of the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn. She will focus on the exciting Grand Finale (the last 22 orbits of the mission where the spacecraft had been flying inside the rings – right over Saturn’s cloud tops). We’ll learn about what happened during the Cassini Grand Finale. Of course we'll have pizza and a short business meeting prior to the webinar. Hope to see you there!
