StellarAlloy Cassini Spacecraft Hand Crafted Metal Model, Gold Plated

In a tribute to one of the most successful planetary spacecraft missions, and a key part of my career as a Planetary Scientist, my son welded a model of the Cassini spacecraft for me for Father's day. Colleagues have expressed interest in such a model, and he is now producing a limited number at Stellar Alloy. This image shows a gold plated version. It is also available in nickel plated and bare metal versions.

The Cassini spacecraft is currently orbiting Saturn and is in its last year of the mission. It will slowly crank its orbit closer and closer, even diving between the rings and the planet, and crash into the planet in September, 2017. The death spiral will afford amazing new views of the Saturn system.

The image background is the colorful Rosette Nebula. The gallery image of the Rosette with technical detail on how the image was made is here.
