Yahoo! News - Spacecraft Landed in Mud on Saturn Moon We've landed on another world... again. Cassini was launched in 1997. It circled the sun for a couple of years, swinging around planets to pick up speed, then shot out to Jupiter. It passed Jupiter in December 2000, and for three and a half years years flew through the void to Saturn - at 12,000 miles per hour. 12,000 mph for three and half years. And that's just the gap between two planets in THIS solar system.
