Agelbert NOTE: Unsaid in this video is WHY Saturn's moons that might harbor life must be protected from the Cassini probe.

I'm glad you asked.  ;D  You see, Cassini has PLUTONIUM fuel. So Saturn is going to get smacked with an element that did not exist before human nuclear physics experiments formed it. 

Saturn is a big gas giant so it probably will not be a problem. But if Cassini had fallen on a moon, it would definitely be a problem for humans if we ever wanted to visit there, never mind any life there now.

Had Cassini failed to make orbit back in 1997, and distributed it's plutonium fuel all over our atmosphere the cancer rates (all cancers, not just lung cancers), which have QUADRUPLED since the 1950's  :P, would be even higher than they are now.   

You see, you only need a teeny, tiny microscopic amount of plutonium in your lungs to give you cancer. So, a few pounds of the stuff dissipated throughout the atmpsphere can threaten the health of millions of people and animals, plus cause deleterious mutations throughout the biosphere.

If you think this is hyperbole, please research the SNAP orbital failure and compare the cancer rates all over the Southern hemisphere AFTER that acccident dosed it with some plutonium (over the years) with those before.

This is a snippet of the sanitized version of that accident:
SNAP-10A, also called SNAPSHOT is an experimental nuclear powered satellite launched into space in 1965. It is the only fission power system launched into space by the United States. The reactor stopped working after just 43 days due to a (non-nuclear) electrical component failure.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SNAP-10A

They leave a lot of facts about plutonium contamination out, just as the video (delivered with the required fawningly religious tone  ::)) below doesn't even directly address the plutonium hazard for life in the Cassini probe.   

Cassini to be directed to disintegrate in Saturn's atmosphere in September of 2017.
