Description: Trina Ray of JPL bids Farewell to the Cassini Spacecraft after 20 of Faithful Service - Cassini launched on October 15, 1997. After a 7 year journey it began to orbit Saturn. Since then Cassini has explored the ringed planet and its moons sending back to earth stunning photos and mind-blowing science. Now, after 20 years of faithful service, Cassini will be "retired" when it is "crashed" into Saturn on September 15, 2017. This will be an extremely emotional moment for Trina Ray and the many women and men who've dedicated 20 years of their lives to this project. Join us as we give a dignified retirement to Cassini and as Trina Ray goes over the exciting history of one of humanities most enlightening spacecrafts ever! Admission and Parking FREE
