Cassini has survived one of the 22 scheduled turns between Saturn and its rings, which it is planned to complete long-term work space probe to collect data about the gas giant and its satellites. The event took place on April 26 at about 12:00 Moscow time at a distance of 3000 km from the studied planet. To protect equipment from particles with starnovsky rings, NASA employees launched the antenna apparatus so that it played the role of a protective shield. The result is almost daily communication with “Cassini” was interrupted.
Today the relationship is restored and probe the new data for the study, as well as photographs, which captured the atmosphere of the planet, which mankind has never reached. Raw images the Agency has posted on the relevant page of the official website. In addition to the Cassini gave the indicators for the study of gravitational and magnetic fields of Saturn as well as materials to determine the chemical composition of the material making up the inner ring of the planet.
