On January 30 2017 Cassini passed 25620 miles (41230 kilometers) from Mimas (a satellite of Saturn). All future observations of Mimas will be from more than twice this distance. This mosaic is one of the highest resolution views ever captured of the icy moon. [1700x1700] [OS]
The 1st rocket launched from Cape Canaveral was the "Bumper 2". It was an ambitious 2-stage rocket that topped a V-2 missile base with a WAC Corporal rocket. The upper stage was able to reach record altitudes of almost 400 kms higher than even modern space shuttles fly today.
