Even though some might say this is just a spacecraft which got sublimated and annihilated by Saturn's colossal atmospheric pressure, I feel quite emotional about Cassini's fate. Personally, I would have liked to see him indefinitely wandering into the infinite space with his distant cousins, the two Voyager spacecrafts but apparently potential contamination of the moons Titan and Enceladus would have been too high to do so. Nonetheless, the prodigious amount of data obtained by the spacecraft will make him live forever in our memory.
