任务控制中心的监视器显示了卡西尼号最后一次坠入土星的剩余时间,2017年9月15日,星期五,加利福尼亚州帕萨迪纳的美国宇航局喷气推进实验室。自2004年抵达以来,卡西尼惠更斯号任务一直是一个探索机器,彻底改变了我们对土星系统的认识,并以前所未有的细节和清晰的图像吸引着我们。2017年9月15日,当卡西尼号收集科学资料到最后时,运营商故意将飞船投入土星。与卡西尼号飞船失去联系发生在美国东部时间早上7:55(美国东部时间早上4:55)。这次“跳水”确保了土星的卫星在未来的探索中将保持原始状态。在卡西尼号的最后几天,来自世界各地的任务小组成员聚集在美国宇航局喷气推进实验室,加利福尼亚州帕萨迪纳,庆祝这一历史性任务的成就。图片来源:(NASA/Joel Kowsky)
Cassini End of Mission
A monitor in mission control shows the time remaining until Cassini makes its final plunge into Saturn, Friday, Sept. 15, 2017 at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. Since its arrival in 2004, the Cassini-Huygens mission has been a discovery machine, revolutionizing our knowledge of the Saturn system and captivating us with data and images never before obtained with such detail and clarity. On Sept. 15, 2017, operators deliberately plunged the spacecraft into Saturn, as Cassini gathered science until the end. Loss of contact with the Cassini spacecraft occurred at 7:55 a.m. EDT (4:55 a.m. PDT). The “plunge” ensures Saturn’s moons will remain pristine for future exploration. During Cassini’s final days, mission team members from all around the world gathered at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, to celebrate the achievements of this historic mission.
