Why do our planets form a disk around the Sun? The NASA Cassini mission revealed that Saturn is a natural laboratory for investigating this question and even helped to demonstrate how new solar systems form around far-away stars.

Find out about Cassini’s discoveries with American Museum of Natural History Curator Denton Ebel and planetary scientist Marina Gemma on an interactive, interplanetary journey in OpenSpace, and ring in the new year with a trip to Saturn’s rings.
