On Sept. 15, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft will complete its remarkable story of exploration with an intentional plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere, ending its mission after nearly 20 years in space. News briefings, photo opportunities and other media events will be held at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, and will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.
NASA also will hold a media teleconference Tuesday, Aug. 29 to preview activities for Cassini during its final two weeks.
Launched in 1997, Cassini arrived in orbit around Saturn in 2004 on a mission to study the giant planet, its rings, moons and magnetosphere. In April of this year, Cassini began the final phase of its mission, called its Grand Finale — a daring series of 22 weekly dives between the planet and its rings. On Sept. 15, Cassini will plunge into Saturn, sending new and unique science about the planet’s upper atmosphere to the very end. After losing contact with Earth, the spacecraft will burn up like a meteor. This is the first time a spacecraft has explored this unique region of Saturn a dramatic conclusion to a mission that has revealed so much about the ringed planet.
Cassini flight controllers will monitor the spacecraft’s final transmissions from JPL Mission Control.

You guys made people to look out for this place rather than the sight of them closing their noses and I’m pretty sure this is the first time after a few decades this place is lit up and vibrant” were the rewarding words of a local resident after the completion of a life scale model of our design solution for this year’s Annual Nasa Design competition’s problem.
Starting out with a small crew in search of an abandoned site filled with both positives and negatives we were magnetised to be attracted to the abandoned and the most misused and perishing rivers running through our locality. With a clear notion of Adyar river as the stretch of interest and Jafferkhanpet as the site we the students pursuing B.Arch. in Hindustan University were set on a mission to reclaim the place along with creating an awareness against the effects of a polluted river front.
After a clear cut study and analysis of the site we were able to create the synopses for the design solution for the prevailing negatives there. The solution was directed towards building a recreational space along with space for stalls and pedestrian pathways. Creating an awareness was the first step. This was possible by the efforts our crew put on cleaning the dumped garbage along the roads. With the task in hand, the materials were bought from the local vendors and the structure was built with the utmost effort of every single person in the crew. Lights and the installations added the overall visual kinetics to the space. After the completion of the built structure and reclaiming the space, a proposal was given for the reclamation of the river. The structure was opened to public on Madras Day (22-08-2017).
A special mention to the local resident (Jamal) who voluntarily helped us with the lightings and for his contributions towards the building of the structure. Lots of helping hands , lots of love from the locals, lots of mocking, lots of on lookers, a very few disturbances from those we expected none , lots of inspirations, lots of questions and a hell lot of mosquitos were part and parcel of the phrase Mission Accomplished.
