The Cassini spacecraft is one of the most expensive NASA projects, it was also attended by experts of the European space Agency and the Italian space Agency ASI.

The device was launched into space in October 1997. His main task was gathering information about Saturn, its rings and satellites.

NASA decided to complete the mission, to avoid collision of the device with the moons of Saturn, which is potentially life.
