Description: It’s time to say goodbye to an old friend, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. Which has been orbiting within the Saturnian system since 2004. But why does a seemingly healthy spacecraft and mission need to come to an end. Today we look back at the mission, some of the amazing discoveries, and why its finale was necessary.

Bio: Fraser Cain is the publisher of Universe Today and Dr. Pamela Gay is a professor at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville. They team up to do Astronomy Cast, a weekly facts-based journey through the cosmos.
