In this episode of Looking Up, hosts Dean Regas and Anna Hehman say good-bye to the successful Cassini spacecraft as it prepares to crash into the surface of Saturn. The mission's Deputy Project Scientist Scott Edgington explains why Cassini is ending this way and some of what has been learned since taking off in 1997. They also answer another Kid Question.
