These Are Some Of The Closest Ever Images Of Saturn That Cassini Ever Captured, And They're Incredible

NASA's Cassini probe is dead but its work is still blowing out minds. The nuclear-powered spacecraft orbited Saturn for 13 years, and sent back hundreds of thousands of images. The photos include close-ups of the gaseous giant, its famous rings, and its enigmatic moons - including Titan, which has its own atmosphere, and icy Enceladus, which has a subsurface ocean that could conceivably harbour microbial life.

Might want to consider that the first photo posted is not a photo, but an artist's coneception.
