“There are times in this world when things just line up
when everything is just about perfect.
A child’s laugh, a desert sunset and this morning.
It just couldn’t have been better,” 

said Cassini spacecraft program manager Earl Maize
as the spacecraft tumbled out of control while plummeting
more than 76,000 mph into Saturn.

“Farewell, faithful explorer.”

  2. Reblogged this on Becoming is Superior to Being and commented:

    NASA’s Cassini spacecraft disintegrated in the skies above Saturn in a final, fateful blaze of cosmic glory, following a remarkable journey of 20 years. (September 15, 2017) I love the Earl Maize quote. — kenne
