The Cassini mission, launched in January 2011, has captured images of Saturn’s rings, including a new glimpse of the moon Enceladus, and a look at Saturn’s surface.
The probe has already captured several new images of the giant planet.
The Cassiopeia mission is a separate, more ambitious mission.
The spacecraft, which has an orbit of 11,600 miles (18,600 kilometers), is orbiting Saturn in a mission dubbed Jupiters.
Jupiter is named after a famous 19th-century German astronomer, Georg Jupitt, who, after a long career as a physicist, became a missionary.
He returned to his native Germany in 1869, and became a famous physicist.
Juppet, a name that translates to “great” in German, is a mission scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
He is responsible for the design of the spacecraft and its instruments.
He is also the principal investigator on Jupits principal investigator, Cassini’s twin, Philae, which is a probe with a robotic arm that has been studying the rings.
Jupiter is also on the Jupiter’s radar, as are the moons Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.
Jupis main objective is to explore these icy worlds, which are considered to be the cradle of life on Earth.
Scientists are also looking at Jupiter’s giant moons Io and Callitha, which have oceans of liquid water beneath their icy crusts.
These moons, which were first discovered in 2008, have since been studied extensively by scientists from around the world.JUICE, the mission’s name in French, is an acronym for Jupiter Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer.
The mission was launched in 2011.
The mission was developed by JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland.JPL manages the mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington.
