Voyager 2 Mission to Saturn!

Voyager 2

Launch date: Aug. 20, 1977

Voyager 2 first flew by Jupiter, then made its way to Saturn, reaching the ringed world on August 26, 1981. It flew within 41,000 kilometers (25,400 miles) of the planet's cloud tops and provided scientists with almost 16,000 images of the planet, its moons and rings. The spacecraft used Saturn's strong gravity to change its course and gather speed so it was able to fly on to Uranus and Neptune. While at Saturn, the two Voyager spacecraft discovered three new moons of Saturn, the intricate structure and spoke-like features of the ring system, as well as information about the planet's atmosphere and magnetic field.
