"EVEN THOUGH WE SPENT SIGNIFICANT TIME MAKING SURE THAT WE WERE CROSSING AT A POINT WHERE THERE WERE NO MAJOR HAZARDS YOU NEVER KNOW."
For Cassini getting through those rings was perhaps the most difficult maneuver of it's two-point-two billion mile trip. Had it been hit by a particle, even the size of pea...the ship could have sustained major damage.

(Nats: Control Room)

That's why mission scientists nervously watched like proud parents as the little probe did something equivalent to slowing down and then merging onto a freeway--that freeway is the orbit around Saturn...and to Nasa's delight it went off without a hitch.

(NATSOUND CHEERING IN MISSION CONTROL)

Cassini is now but 12-thousand 500 miles above the planet's cloud tops--and the pictures being sent back are nothing short of amazing.

(SOT DR. MICHELE DOUGERTY/NASA)


"IT'S THE TIME WHERE WE ARE AIS AS CLOSE TO SATURN AS WE ARE EVER GOING TO GET."
For the next four years, Cassini will tour the ringed planet and some of it 31 moons. In fact inside Cassini is a probe called Huygens. In January it will explore Saturn's largest moon--Titan. Scientists hope if Cassini-Huygens is successful--there will be more planetary missions on the horizon that will allow them to keep reaching for the stars. Drew Levinson, CBS News.))
