On october 15th, the NASA Satellite Cassini ended its triumphant 13 year mission to explore Saturn, its rings and its 62 moons. Cassini carried the European Huygens lander. The mission's photographs, measurements and tests sent back awesome beauty, new understanding, and surprises. Only nations united in their investment in science could undertake such a bold engineering adventure.

Visit Saturn for a day with Cassini. Construct and illuminate a model of Saturn, its rings and some of the moons. Construct models of Cassini and Huygens. Help manage our Command Center to sample the brilliant photographs that will be remembered as an early triumph of 21st Century science and engineering.
