>> NASA's Cassini spacecraft dove through the narrow gap between Saturn and it's rings on Wednesday. And beamed back data Thursday morning. The information including images of Saturn's cloud tops, taken as the spacecraft plunged to a distance of just 900 miles from the planet. It also snapped images of a colossal hurricane.
NASA officials say it's the closest to Saturn that any spacecraft has ever come. The Cassini aircraft was launched in 1997, and arrived in Saturn's orbit in 2004. The aircraft is on a trajectory to smash into Saturn's atmosphere by September at a speed of about 77,000 miles per hour.
Finally, ending what NASA is calling Cassini's grand finale.
