Ouch I had a prediction Cassini would get blown up passing between those rings. I am so glad it didnt. One little rock coulda ended the mission. I am surprised NASA took such risk with so little knowledge.

Well Cassini survived thank goodness. more at

"The Cassini spacecraft was hit by storms of dust as it passed through Saturn's rings twice just before going into orbit June 30."
