In its last {tooltip} task {end-text} job {end-tooltip} before hitting Saturn’s surface , Cassini will pass through the space between the planet’s surface and its rings.  It will travel closer to Saturn than ever before. NASA {tooltip} scientists {end-text} a person who is trained in science and works in a lab {end-tooltip}expect Cassini to find out even more about the Saturn’s {tooltip} mysterious {end-text} strange and unusual {end-tooltip}rings than we already know.
