The Question: Launched in 1997, Cassini spacecraft sent back close-up images of what?
The Milky Way
The asteroid belt
Saturn’s rings are one of the most awe-inspiring features of our solar system. In the early 1980s, Voyager 1 and 2 sent back the first close-up images of the gas giant, but it wasn’t until Cassini-Huygens that scientists got a look at Saturn in stunning detail. After a 20-year mission, NASA sent Cassini on a crash course into Saturn’s atmosphere to protect potential life on nearby moons.
The Answer: The correct answer is Saturn’s rings.
