Cassini – level 2

22-09-2017 15:00

In 1997, NASA sent the Cassini probe to space, and in 2004, it arrived at Saturn. Until now, it has been studying the second largest planet in our solar system.

Cassini circulated Saturn almost 300 times and collected information. Thanks to the probe, we understand Saturn much better. After 20 years of service, Cassini entered the planet’s thick atmosphere and burnt up.

Cassini’s mission was one of the most successful missions to space. NASA said that everything went ‘extremely well’. Cassini found many moons, six of which already have names.

Difficult words: probe (a spacecraft without people), circulate (go around in a circle), collect (get).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
