In this computer artist's rendering, the Cassini spacecraft fires its engine in a maneuver that will place the spacecraft in orbit around Saturn. The orbiter will study the atmosphere, magnetic environment, extensive ring system and moons of the giant planet for four years. Cassini will also release a probe called Huygens that will descend into the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan to study the atmosphere, surface and chemical composition of this large satellite. Cassini is a joint mission of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The mission is scheduled for launch in October 1997 and will reach Saturn in July 2004.
