NASA is going to vaporize: one of its best spacecraft.Flying at more than 76,000 miles per hour, the spacecraft zipped through an unexplored space between Saturn and its rings, where no spaceship has flown before. In September, after 22 laps through this region, the probe plunges into the atmosphere of the gas giant, where they "break, merge, and become a part of the same planet that left Earth 20 years ago to explore, "Cassini project director Earl Maize told a news conference on Tuesday.It will be a sad end to a mission that brought us a view of Saturn and its rings and moons. Cassini revealed the geysers of Enceladus, alluding to an ocean beneath the surface, and showed scientists how Earth-like alien-Titan is. Why the spacecraft that die?Some space probes are allowed to keep their targets in orbit in perpetuity after their mission ends similar to the Dawn spacecraft on the Ceres dwarf planet. But things are much more complicated around Saturn.While Ceres is essentially just a very large rock without moons, Saturn has 62 satellites, at the last count. The gravitational thrust and pull of those moons-especially the larger, Titan ravages -wreak in the Cassini trajectory, which is usually corrected by the burning of fuel.But the spacecraft's fuel is running out, and ultimately its fate is sealed by its own discoveries; Scientists do not want to take the risk of crashing against the spacecraft Titan and Enceladus, who may be able to bear life.
