Here, we demonstrate for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, in a non human animal, the domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus), that mood and personality interact, impacting on judgement.
All good things must come to an end though, and Cassini is finally running low on fuel. The craft is already taking its bows before its ultimate dramatic dive on September 15, 2017. Called Cassini’s “Grand Finale,” the Orbiter will plunge between Saturn and its rings, gather first hand data on the way, and then crash into Saturn to avoid contaminating Titan or Enceladus, both which could host environments for life..
