In space for a few days under 20 years, the Cassini probe completed what was arguably the most ambitious mission, mankind has ever attempted to the outer solar system. In this talk we explore the mission and the spacecraft that undertook it. From its conception through to its fiery end diving in to the clouds of Saturn.

All events are held at the observatory
