Cassinis First Grand Finale Dive: Milestones
Updated April 26, 2017 at 2 a.m. PDT
Cassini has made its first dive between the rings and Saturn. It is not in contact with Earth at this time and is expected to regain contact via NASAs Deep Space Network no earlier than around midnight PDT on April 26, 2017 (3 a.m. EDT on April 27, 2017).
3:30 am EDT tomorrow, by the way, excuse me.
Anybody see Google’s little cartoon today? Its kinda cute...I’m seriously considering staying up and finding the link to watch.
It’s incredible to me that we can plan, design, engineer, fund, maintain, “talk” to our probes and satellites & space station, but somehow...
our infrastructure is crumbling, untold trillions wasted on liberal/fascist govt programs “to help the people”. And a good many of our city’s are wastelands. Shame.
