Cassini Project Scientist Linda Spilker explains the tradition of lucky peanuts at a gathering for mission team members, family and friends in Von Karman Auditorium at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. They were waiting to learn the fate of the Cassini spacecraft after its first dive through the narrow gap between Saturn and its rings on April 26, 2017.
