Saturn's Rings - A Closer Look

On the 1st of July, 2004, an orbiter called Cassini - carrying a probe named Huygens - began to transmit pictures of Saturn's rings to scientists on Earth. 

A joint mission between the US (responsible for the space craft) and the European Space Agency (responsible for the probe), the four-year project allowed people around the world to have a closer look at the sixth planet ("from the sun"), its amazing rings and many moons.
