The Cassini probe wraps up its 13 year mission on September 15 and NASA/JPL have put together a beautiful tribute video to show just how much it's shown us about Saturn and its rings.  Watch.  Enjoy.  Mark your calendar for Cassini's decent into the ringed giant's atmoshpere and take a moment to reflect on the probe and the people who conceived, created, and launched it into the void.

From official release/information:

For 13 years the spacecraft's incredible, truly otherworldly images have revealed the wonder of Saturn in surprising, often awe-inspiring ways.  NASA's Cassini spacecraft has explored the Saturn system since 2004, re-writing our understanding of the giant planet, its rings, moons, and magnetosphere.  Cassini is planetary exploration at its finest, proving that to truly reveal the grandeur of a world, there is no substitute for actually going there.
