Also for the TODO list:

What about adding the famous Ring Spokes to ringed worlds!!!? smile

They appear as dark radially elongated features in the B ring. They generate in the shadow of Saturn and endure a few hours while the differenciated rotation of the rings distorts them (tilting and streching). And more important: they appear only near the equinoxes (when the sun shines a few degrees over the rings).

You may think this is not important. But recently I encountered a video of Voyager 2 at the Saturn arrival that has been processed by a very impressive member of the planetary society from the raw data, and it clearly shows how evident and important those spokes are.
For the sake of realism in SE, this could be added one day smile

The spectacular video


For comparison, here you have the same video when it was released to the public back then (without the processing). Quite a huge work. (time-> 5:28)

New Enceladus images from Cassini !
That's just a small selection, there is more, and I guess mosaics and colors are on the way. cool

midtskogen, will Cassini be crashed into Saturn's atmosphere or it will just escape it's orbit/turn of its computers?

Salvo, it will be crashed into saturn atmosphere just like juno will do with jupiter,
just before the grand finale cassini will change her orbit so it will crashed into saturn.
and from there cassini will be part of saturn, what a finale. smile

Cassini will be crashed into Saturn. The reason for this is so that the Cassini spacecraft won't accidentally crash into any of Saturn's moons.

Titan and Enceladus have potentially habitable environments. If Cassini were to crash into either of those moons, microbes from the spacecraft could contaminate the environments of those moons.

Saturn has a far less likelihood of having a microbe-friendly habitat. The Cassini spacecraft will be destroyed in Saturn's atmosphere along with any microbes that the spacecraft may carry.

Apparently another cloud was discovered on Titan.
