When I came across this photo a few weeks ago it made me sigh. It contains the planet Saturn and, unseen, the Cassini spacecraft nearby. Three months later, to the day, the Cassini mission ended when the spacecraft intentionally plunged into the planet, never to return.

Like many who worked on the mission, my heart remains broken even now in a way that still surprises me.
