NASA To Live Stream Cassini Plunge

NASA/JPL-Caltech/SSI If you could magically teleport across the solar system, Saturn would be a great place to swing by on Friday morning. Hovering above the ringed planet's surface, you'd see something amazing. Just after 6:32 a.m. EDT, a bus-size object will scream over the cloud tops, burst into millions of pieces, and glow like a meteor. But this meteor isn't a rock: It's NASA's nuclear-powered Cassini spacecraft plunging to its doom. There's little chance telescopes will see the 20-year, $3.26-billion mission come to an end.
