September 2017, NASA's Cassini took its final loop around Saturn—between the rings and the planetary body itself—before incinerating in the atmosphere. Depicting a brief Cassini history, I drew the below cartoons. I was also very lucky to be at the tracking station in Canberra that received Cassini's final transmission before its own death. I broadcast a 'Facebook Live' stream from the station, featured at the page bottom.
Here's a live video from the event featuring Glen Nagle, Outreach Lead of the CSIRO-NASA deep space tracking station in Canberra. (Sorry to future blog readers with the dead link below.)
