RE: Saturn
Has anyone ever calculated the total mass of the rings? Are they significant?

RE: Saturn
That is a goal of the end of mission trajectories.

Cassini will be at altitudes above Saturn's cloud tops but below the lower edge of the ring system. By having the craft above and below, so to speak, of the rings, their mass can be teased out by careful analysis of the trajectory of Cassini around Saturn.

Additionally, some pics are planned of the night side equatorial area, perhaps some streaks of light of ring detritus burning up will be seen.
If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.

And the brain goes sideways.
