After 13 years of awesome science, Cassini will be retired on Sept 15! As someone who loves space and enjoys a good animation, I think they did a wonderful job announcing the end-mission plans.

Since many of us are space nerds, I wanted to throw this on the forums. How do you feel about Cassini's legacy?

Both incredible and scary how emotional I can get over a machine. But it is going to be an epic end to it.

Two awesome craft (don't sleep on the adjunct mission of the Huygens probe) and a superbly executed mission. NASA, ESA, ASI, brava!
