Ten Best Pictures From NASA’s Cassini Probe

Fifteen years ago this week, a Titan rocket launched the bus-size spacecraft from Cape Canaveral, Florida. In July 2004 Cassini finally entered Saturn orbit. Since then the probe has beamed back a steady stream of some 300,000 pictures and nearly 450 gigabytes of data about the ringed giant and its dozens of enigmatic moons.
