Sen—NASA's Cassini space probe has been a triumph for space scientists, returning a wealth of images and other data from giant planet Saturn and its moons. Part of the joint Cassini-Huygens mission with Europe, the spacecraft continues to make discoveries years after it became Saturn's first artificial satellite. In an exclusive interview, Dr Carolyn Porco, a Senior Research Scientist at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado, who leads the Cassini Imaging Team, spoke to Sen about the mission's successes.
