History

HISTORY

Cassini was designed to explore Saturn's system from orbit: the planet and its atmosphere, rings and magnetosphere, and its moons, particularly Titan and the icy satellites.

The spacecraft is named in honor of Giovanni Cassini, the 17th century astronomer who discovered gaps in Saturn's rings.

Cassini was the first spacecraft to orbit Saturn.


Saturn as pres

SATURN AS PRES.

It’s named for the Roman God of agriculture. It would be very helpful in the economy. With inflation, everyone could grow their own crops and save money. Saturn is here to help the economy get back on its feet.


As a person

AS A PERSON…

If Saturn was a person, it would probably be a farmer. Being the agriculture planet, it understands the difficulty of the economy, just like an every day farmer.
