SUNDAY SPECIAL: The Cassini E-Book


SUNDAY SPECIAL: The Cassini E-Book
If NASA's Cassini spacecraft's fiery plunge into Saturn has stoked your passion for photos of Saturn and its accompanying rings, fear not for the agency has released a new e-book. The cool read highlights fascinating photos and important scientific discoveries made during the thirteen years Cassini spent around the ringed planet
The collection of images in the e-book are split into five parts. The first section showcases Saturn proper, while the second takes a closer look at its exquisite rings. Afterwards, the potentially habitable moons Titans and Enceladus each receive their own parts. The last chapter covers the other moons of the Saturn system.
