Cassini, who spent about 20 years in space on September 15, 2017 and studied Saturn for 13 years, continued to send data from live broadcast footage to the atmosphere of the planet until it was destroyed. This dive, which was broadcasted on the social media platform and announced live on the website via the public, was the result of Cassini’s long journey.
