NASA’s Eyes on the Solar System Features Cassini

Eyes on the Solar System is a 3D interactive simulation of our cosmic neighborhood, complete with planets and moons you can visit and NASA spacecraft you can fly alongside. Eyes now includes a special module featuring the Cassini mission.

Get up close with Cassini’s science instruments.
Cassini module highlights:
  1. Check the spacecraft’s current position and orbit
  2. Look around the scenes of some of Cassini’s greatest images, in 3D
  3. Learn about key spacecraft components and instruments – see where they are located and what they do
  4. See where Cassini has been, including all of its major flyby encounters with the moons, and where it’s headed

Eyes on the Solar System has a special connection to Cassini, as it grew out of a tool called CASSIE, first released by NASA and the Cassini mission in 2008.
