Cassini: The Grand Finale

The Cassini-Huygens mission ended on September 15th with the destruction of the probe entering Saturn's atmosphere. It was an amazing mission, lasted a lot more then initially expected, and will give for years material for new discoveries.

I know there was no way to keep it going, bit I'm sad this mission ended, especially because there are no other mission, at the moment, directed to the giant planets, and considering how long it takes to develop a mission, and for it to reach the planet, we won't have anything like Cassini for the next ten, fifteen years! :'(
