Cassini NASA Saturn Project

Woo-hoo!! Katya,, a.k.a. Ch (Cdn & UKC) Varazs Sziv Jump For Joy RN, RA, RE, CGC CGN from our 2003 litter and her owner, Pauline Helfenstein are in the NASA Saturn book as Cassini team members.

Katya "helps" Pauline on the space project.

"Cassini-Huygens is one of the most ambitious missions ever launched into space. Loaded with an array of powerful instruments and cameras, the spacecraft is capable of taking accurate measurements and detailed images in a variety of atmospheric conditions and light spectra.

Two elements comprise the spacecraft: The Cassini orbiter and the Huygens probe. In 2004, Cassini-Huygens reached Saturn and its moons. There the spacecraft began orbiting the system in July 2004, beaming home valuable data that will help us understand the vast Saturnian region. Huygens entered the murky atmosphere of Titan, Saturn's biggest moon, and descended via parachute onto its surface."
