Cassini's Last Hurrah - the Grand Finale at Saturn. With Professor Fred Watson If there was ever a space project that totally exceeded the expectations of the scientific world, it has been the Cassini mission to Saturn.With the spacecraft's fuel running out, mission controllers have thrown caution to the winds in an audacious series of orbits that thread Cassini between the rings and the planet before a final plunge into Saturn's atmosphere on 15 September. Celebrate this triumphant mission with Fred Watson, as he presents an entertaining update on all things Cassini. Includes presentation, short 3D movie and viewing of the night sky through a range of telescopes (weather permitting)
