The Cassini-Huygens spacecraft has been hanging around Saturn for 13 years, studying the planet and its moons closer than any spacecraft in history. It’s a $4 billion project and a collaboration between NASA and the European and Italian Space Agencies.
On Friday, Cassini will be intentionally crashed into Saturn.
