NASA at Saturn: Cassini's Grand Finale

The final chapter in a remarkable mission of exploration and discovery, Cassini's Grand Finale is in many ways like a brand new mission.

This animated video tells the story of Cassini's final, daring assignment and looks back at what the mission has accomplished.

The reason they have to be destroyed is if they have traces of life and the fear it may contaminate other worlds.
