The Cassini Google Doodle

What I like about Google in the Morning (other than the smell of victory, of course), is:
The company is run by geeks and nderds and therefor, they care a lot about science. This morning, when I browsed to Google, I found this wonderfull Doodle and it made me grin:

 

Cassini Saturn Rings Dive Google Doodle

This Doodle refers to the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn, a combined effort by NASA, ESA and ASI.

The reason for the Doodle could hardly be more epic:

Today, April 26th 2017, the Cassini probe will dive into the space between the Rings of Saturn and Saturn itself, a region where no other spacecraft has gone before.

To keep yourself updated on the status of this part of the mission and Csssini in the future in general, I recommend you follow the brave probe on Twitter.

Go, go, go Cassini! I am rooting for you!
