NASA Invites You To Join In The Cassini Name Game
Because the spacecraft will be very close to Saturn, the team has been calling this phase “the proximal orbits.” But they think someone out there can conjure up a cooler name. Here's where you come in: you can choose your faves from a list already assembled, or you can submit your own ideas (up to three). The big reveal for the final name will be in May 2014.
This naming contest is part of the 10-year anniversary celebration. The mission will mark a decade of exploring Saturn, its rings and moons on June 30 PDT (July 1 EDT).

As part of the anniversary celebration, the Cassini team has released a video preview of the next four years of the mission: http://youtu.be/fAQM9rfZq7w
