Caption: Cassini spacecraft. Composite artwork of the Cassini spacecraft on a starfield. Both its engines are firing in order to make directional corrections or to slow the spacecraft so that it will be captured by Saturn's gravity. Cassini will orbit Saturn for four years, studying the planet, its rings and its moons. It was launched in October 1997 and is expected to reach Saturn in July 2004. Cassini is carrying the disc-shaped Huygens probe on its underside. The probe will enter the atmosphere of Titan, one of Saturn's moons, and transmit data from its surface for up to 30 minutes.
