Share Your Art with Cassini Inspires

safe_imageTo celebrate the many ways Cassini’s exploration of Saturn has sparked curiosity and wonder, the mission is launching a campaign that will continue through its conclusion in September. The activity, called “Cassini Inspires,” invites members of the public to share their original Saturn-inspired artistic creations in a variety of different media (including painting, music, poetry, fiction, video or any format that can be shared online). To participate, artists can post their creations on the social media platform of their choice, and tag them #CassiniInspires. How has Cassini inspired you?
