Artists's Conception of Cassini Saturn Orbit Insertion



This is an artists concept of Cassini during the Saturn Orbit Insertion (SOI) maneuver, just after the main engine has begun firing. The spacecraft is moving out of the plane of the page and to the right (firing to reduce its spacecraft velocity with respect to Saturn) and has just crossed the ring plane.



Includes a border on all sides to allow for matting and framing.
