Cassini spacecraft gets back in touch with Nasa |

Engineers had no way of knowing whether the probe had survived the dangerous journey. But it is now sending data back, over a trip that takes 78 minutes.

The Cassini spacecraft has made a journey never undertaken before – and has sent back stunning photos of the journey.

Nasas craft made its way through the rings of Saturn for the first ever time. The dangerous journey – the first of 22 trips – saw the ship lose all contact with its engineers because it had to use its own antenna as a shield.

But it is now back in touch with Earth and sending images through space. That journey takes 78 minutes – and actually interpreting the data will take years or even decades.
