Video: NASA probe Cassini relays final data as it plunges into Saturn's atmosphere

NASA probe Cassini
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Cassini space probe completed its extraordinary journey of exploration on Friday and ended its mission almost 20 years after takeoff by taking a final, fiery plunge at high speed into Saturn's atmosphere, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California said.

Cassini had spent the last 13 years circling around Saturn' s ring and satellite system, busily transmitting data and images right to the last second prior to destruction in the gas giant's outer reaches.
