Well done space x. 10 satellites deployed just now and 1st stage landed back on the ship. Weather at sea looked fairly choppy but still a good landing.

I can find only one cinema in cork showing "The Farthest". The Gate cinema is showing this at 20.45 tonight.

This acclaimed documentary about the voyager space probe would look great on the big screen.

The Cassini mission ends spectacularly today when the orbiter will dive into Saturn's atmosphere, bringing its 20 year mission to a close. Cassini has been doing a series of dives between the planet and its inner ring (heh heh) and will finish today with a final, terminal dive. In that time it has explored it's moons, landed the ESA's Huygens probe on Titan and discovered loads of stuff about the rings and the planet itself. It's unreal what has been achieved.

There'll be live coverage starting at 7am EDT (that's noon here) on Nasa TV.

Is there a reason they want to end its mission now by destroying it in Saturn's atmosphere?

There is a high chance of life existing on one or more of saturns moons.
Leaving the probe coast along there is a risk that the probe might break up and crash on these moons and poteentially contaminate the life there with earth germs.

Burning it up inbsaturns atmosphere will make sure that this doesnt happen.
