Well letís see:

The Cassini-Huygens mission: orbiter In Situ investigations ( Kluwer Academic )

Mission to Saturn: Cassini and the Huygens probe ( Praxis )

Passage to a ringed world: Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn and Titan ( NASA )

And more recently about the management difficulties:

The Titans of Saturn: Leadership and Performance lessons from Cassini-Huygens

Easiest way is to do a search at Amazon.co.uk ( or Amazon.com ) and You'll get a list with available books dry.gif

Go to this Web site and scroll down to the Cassini section (the spacecraft are listed in alphabetical order):


"After having some business dealings with men, I am occasionally chagrined,
and feel as if I had done some wrong, and it is hard to forget the ugly circumstance.
I see that such intercourse long continued would make one thoroughly prosaic, hard,
and coarse. But the longest intercourse with Nature, though in her rudest moods, does
not thus harden and make coarse. A hard, sensible man whom we liken to a rock is
indeed much harder than a rock. From hard, coarse, insensible men with whom I have
no sympathy, I go to commune with the rocks, whose hearts are comparatively soft."

- Henry David Thoreau, November 15, 1853

A good Cassini Book, pre-encounter, is "Exploring Saturn" by Dan Bortolotti. The cover shows The beautiful artwork of Cassini entering orbit over the rings with saturn backdrop.
