What does Nasa plan to do with the superbly successful Cassini probe when it nears its last gasp?
Is there a plan to plummet the probe into Saturn's atmosphere, as Nasa did with Galileo at Jupiter?

It loos like it's fate is still undecided but it has had a couple of extensions to its mission life (2017 the latest one) so I suppose they will wait to see how 'healthy' it is then.
