Perhaps, topics that involve Extraterrestrial Intelligence are one of the most daunting tasks to write about. Having no formal proofs for their existence, and still knowing that anything, including the existence of Extraterrestrial Life, is possible, it is even more complicated to think about what they are based on, what shapes, sizes, and forms, they have - if they do exist. Extraterrestrials have been a major topic for SciFi; many books have been written and as many movies, if not more, have been produced.

Saturn Rings

We determined Saturn’s gravitational field by reconstruction of Cassini’s trajectory during the Grand Finale, using a coherent microwave link between Earth tracking stations and the spacecraft. Range-rate measurements were obtained from the Doppler shift of a carrier signal sent from the ground at 7.2 GHz (X-band) and retransmitted back to Earth by Cassini’s onboard transponder at 8.4 GHz. An auxiliary downlink at Ka-band (32.5 GHz) was also recorded.
