‘Solar System’ has been one of the worlds where only a few people dwell and those are scientists. To accompany them there are satellites placed in the orbits of our planet Earth. Likewise, Cassini spacecraft is in its final stage but it has some beautiful images of Saturn planet that it captured out there. 

Cassini was launched in 1997 and took seven years to travel two billion miles to Saturn, before embarking on a 13-year journey of discovery that delivered a wealth of scientific data on the planet and its moons.

Now with the spacecraft running out of fuel, and soon to become impossible to steer, controllers have chosen to bring the mission to a fiery end. The decision to send Cassini to its fiery grave was taken in order to avoid any chance of the spacecraft crashing onto Saturn moons Titan or Enceladus and possibly contaminating the potentially life-hosting worlds with Earth bugs.

Following are the beautiful images captured by Cassini spacecraft.
