Rings Around Saturn

NASA's Cassini probe has been at Saturn for three years now, and the team have celebrated by putting together a slide show. Some of the captions are insufficiently detailed, but there's no quarrelling with the pictures.

(I could hope that this post will attract as many hits as the recent one whose topics included "HBO", "Mormons", and "sex" ... but it probably won't. A shame, that.)

Thanks for the link - great pictures, and it's a change to heard something about Cassini from a source outside my department.

As for other your other post, as well as having those keywords, it was a very good post. I don't remember all the details of the series, but it seemed quite well done

Glad to know that Queen Mary runs to some planetary programme tragics. Anyone with a professional involvement, or just enthusiasts?

Regarding Big Love: it's just a pleasure to see such an intelligent TV drama. It puts the lie to all of the usual excuses: because you can have eye-candy, crowd-pleasing dramatics, and such, and still make a thoughtful programme that is actually worth discussing afterwards ...
