Ring Rider by AlanGutierrezArt Ring Rider by AlanGutierrezArt
In Nov. 1997, I was commissioned for this 2 page spread, for Popular Mechanics Magazine, from the article by Stefano Coledan.

It shows the Cassini orbiter probe, which was launched in October 1997 with the European Space Agency's Huygens probe.

Here, it is shown passing into Saturn's rings. Later, the Huygens probe landed on Titan (2005), and increased our knowledge of Saturn's largest moon.

Cassini completed it's first mission in 2008, and has continued new missions since, extending through 2017.
