Cassini beams back the closest EVER images of Saturn – And nobody knows what the are picture and video

The Event Chronicle Editor Note: According to David Wilcock, Saturn’s rings are comprised of glass-like shards from a destroyed ancient civilization: “Insider Bruce ended up telling me in the Authorized Disclosure, that there is junk all over the place. It’s all made out of this very advanced crystalline material that they’ve analyzed and it’s actually aluminum…

Cassini captures ‘closest look ever’ at Saturn in sensational new photos — RT Viral

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has re-established contact with Earth, sending back extraordinary new photographs as it ventures where no spaceship has travelled before – between Saturn and its rings.

The gap between the rings and the top of Saturn’s atmosphere is about 2,400km (1,500 miles) wide.Cassini passed through the gap at speeds of about 123,000kph (77,000mph) on Wednesday as part of the craft’s final exploratory mission dubbed the ‘Grand finale.’

The craft used its dish-shaped antenna as a shield against oncoming particles while it travelled through the region as scientists feared that even small particles could have disabled the spacecraft. Using the dish in this way forced Cassini to lose contact with Earth.

The ship was programmed to collect data while close to the planet and then turn back towards Earth to re-establish contact. It successfully completed the maneuver on Thursday, about 20 hours after the crossing.

Amongst the data freshly beamed back to Earth are stunning new photographs of a giant hurricane on Saturn and the closest-ever photos of the planet’s atmosphere.

NASA released the photos on Thursday. It’s hoped that the data will help scientists calculate the mass of the planet’s rings.

“In the grandest tradition of exploration, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has once again blazed a trail, showing us new wonders and demonstrating where our curiosity can take us if we dare,” Jim Green, director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA, said.

The $3.2 billion Cassini mission was launched in 1997 and is a joint venture between NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Italian space agency (ASI). It has been orbiting Saturn since 2004 and has captured thousands of incredible images of the ringed planet and nearby moons.

The gap between Saturn and its rings is no longer unexplored space – and we’re going back 21 times. ! https://go.nasa.gov/1Up1oba 

As part of the ‘Grand finale,’ Cassini will make 22 orbits that will bring it increasingly closer to the surface of Saturn before it intentionally plunges into the planet’s gaseous atmosphere this September.

The ‘Grand finale’ will “satisfy planetary protection requirements” and leave no contamination to other planets, according to the ESA. The next dive through the gap is scheduled for May 2.

NASA Admits Possible Alien Life On A Moon In Our Solar System – Your News Wire

NASA just discovered the possibility of alien life on a moon in our solar system. Specifically, alien life on Enceladus, one of Saturn’s 53 moons.Enceladus’ surface is entirely covered with an ocean and has everything needed to support life, including chemical compounds found on Earth, which indicate evidence of life under this moon’s iced-over ocean surface.This discovery could lead to more extensive discoveries and immensely improve our understanding of extraterrestrial life and our solar system both now and in the future.The Independant reports:Scientists have long thought of Enceladus as one of the prime candidates for life within our solar system or anywhere else nearby, in large part because it is a planetary body with an ocean that covers its entire surface. But the new research gives the best look yet at that moon, showing that it has a chemical energy source capable of supporting life…

Saturn’s Baffling Hexagon — The Raging Storm Four Times the Size of Earth has Changed Its Colors — Stillness in the Storm

Source – Daily Galaxyby Daily Galaxy Staff, October 25th 2016NASA’s Cassini spacecraft discovered a static hexagonal storm four times the size of Earth crowning Saturn’s north pole, including a clearly defined eyewall. Based on its size and movements, scientists have concluded that it’s a vast cloud pattern generated by a gigantic, perpetual hurricane spinning at…
