It’s odd how a machine (a robot) like Cassini can garner human emotions from us. The assumption is that no matter if the item is of biological or non-organic, we humans project a lot on to what we deemed important to us.
And to many of us on this Earth, Cassini’s service was important.
NASA has much data to sift through in the coming months and years. We’re looking forward to that.
This video is of the early morning sequence and exact second when Cassini’s radio connection was severed (i.e. collapse of the spacecraft).
We’d recommend you watch the whole thing.
