about

On September 15, 2017, the Cassini Spacecraft, which is currently executing multiple dives between the rings of Saturn and the planet itself, will make one final dive into Saturn's atmosphere where it will burn up for good. This song was written to commemorate this truly momentous occasion in the history of space exploration. And to rock out in its honor.

lyrics

Gotta take it back, back to 1997
When Cassini left the Earth for good
With a one-way ticket for a seven-year journey
Bound for Saturn and its neighborhood

Destination the jewel of the planets
Had to leave the Earth far behind
But little did they know the success of the mission
Would leave it in such a bind

Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!
Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!

Gathering data and sending it back
Information like we'd never seen
But when Cassini found water on Enceladus
Man, our faces turned a little green

It was scheduled to orbit ad infinitum
But now the risk was much too high
So one last dive through Saturn's rings
Then it's time to light up the sky

Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!
Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!
Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!
Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!

When the mission's all done and the data's collected
Enceladus will need to be protected
When the mission's all done and the data's collected
Enceladus will need to be protected

To avoid contamination and the risk of pollution
A Grand Finale is the only solution
To avoid contamination and the risk of pollution
A Grand Finale is the only solution

Only solution?
Yes
Only solution?
Yes

If that's so, let's put on a good show

Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!
Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!
Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!
Ohhhhh!
Cassini Dive Go!
