What was the logic in killing her?
Why crash her into saturn deliberately instead of letting her keep going round and round till she ran out of juice or collapsed on her own?
it had already running out of juice, even if they had let it orbit saturn indefinitely, there is absolutely no data that the voyager would have been sending back.

so they had to give it a spectacular ending

Ilisemekana pia the scientists did not want Cassini's fragments to pollute/contaminate delicate features of the planet after it has served its purpose. Eti some images show the planet has oceans/water, which hypothetically means it can support life.

Just trying to imagine the kind of precision engineering required to conceptualize and deploy such. I'm in awe!
