A quick update on the timeline for Cassini’s end of mission. At 3:58pm Eastern Daylight Time, Cassini will take the final images with its camera. A short time later, the spacecraft will turn towards Earth, starting a downlink on the Deep Space Network that will last until the end of mission. I will share links to watch the live stream of the end of mission tomorrow morning, so watch Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for that link. I will also post the link here in the show notes.
