And if you watch through the first half, in the second part you'll be rewarded with a cover of "La donna è mobile" sung by Star Trek Voyager's holographic doctor (Robert Picardo) 😂

Oh no, I re-watched the Grand Finale segment at the end, and it made me cry... again!

I'm in this hipster bakery cafe in Redondo Beach, wearing badass motorcycle gear, and the tears just won't stop... 🥹

Don't sweat it. My wife worked on Cassini years ago and it made us cry too. (I was the tissue wrangler.)

Good to know I'm not the only weirdo who'd get emotional over a dead space probe 🥲

@stux @tsturm

@codewiz @tsturm Oh trust me, you're not!❤️ Almost every good launch does it but also such great shorts from JPL holy smokes! :blobcatgiggle:

The first Falcon Heavy launch did the same with Starman oooohhhh :blobcatspace: Kinda the only thing that can make me cry :blobcatgiggle:
