Carolyn,
I still wish Cassini could be slowed down once its mission is over so it could approach and maybe mingle within the ring system for some last close up photos. The latest veiws are tantalizing.

Carolyn,
Instead of crashing Cassini into Saturn upon conclusion of its scientific mission, could Cassini someway be slowed down and merged into the ring system plane for a close up investigation of the ring debris? Maybe it could be captured and placed in orbit around one of the icy shepard moons?
