On June 30, 2004, the Cassini spacecraft, carrying the European Space Agency’s Huygens probe, arrived at Saturn. Today Cassini celebrates 10 years exploring the Saturn system. Originally intended for a four-year primary mission, Cassini has received three extensions allowing the spacecraft to collect 514 GB of science data and 332,000 stunning images of the planet, its rings and moons.Below is a list compiled by NASA of Cassini’s Top 10 discoveries and accomplishments: — The Huygens probe makes first landing on a moon in the outer Solar System (Titan) — Discovery of active, icy plumes on the Saturnian moon Enceladus — Saturn’s rings revealed as active and dynamic — a laboratory for how planets form — Titan revealed as an Earth-like world with rain, rivers, lakes and seas — Studies of Saturn’s great northern storm of 2010-2011 — Studies reveal radio-wave patterns are not tied to Saturn’s interior rotation, as previously thought — Vertical structures in the rings imaged for the first time — Study of prebiotic chemistry on Titan — Mystery of the dual, bright-dark surface of the moon Iapetus solved — First complete view of the north polar hexagon and discovery of giant hurricanes at both of Saturn’s poles Read more: Cassini’s 10 Years At Saturn: http://go.nasa.gov/1o3EzJZ Cassini’s Top 10 Discoveries: http://go.nasa.gov/1m1Skuf  Check out Cassini’s Top Images: http://go.nasa.gov/1veUSF3 Download The Infographic: http://go.nasa.gov/1wxXSyW Image Credit: NASA

— Saturn’s rings revealed as active and dynamic — a laboratory for how planets form
— Titan revealed as an Earth-like world with rain, rivers, lakes and seas
— Studies of Saturn’s great northern storm of 2010-2011
— Studies reveal radio-wave patterns are not tied to Saturn’s interior rotation, as previously thought
— Vertical structures in the rings imaged for the first time
— Study of prebiotic chemistry on Titan
— Mystery of the dual, bright-dark surface of the moon Iapetus solved
— First complete view of the north polar hexagon and discovery of giant hurricanes at both of Saturn’s poles
