The Death of Cassini
Early this morning, the world watched NASA's Cassini/Huygens space probe die as its orbit around the planet Saturn finally decayed and it plummeted into Saturn's atmosphere. The 13 year mission to explore and survey Saturn came this finale and NASA will continue record information about the planet all the way until the it can no longer maintain attitude control and signal is lost.

The probe trailblazed a number of firsts, including the first major examination of Saturn and its moons. Of particular interest was the first ever landing of a space probe on the surface of Titan, Saturn's largest moon.

The world is watching. As in, right now.

T -13 minutes.

And in fact it already has happened as it takes the last signals 79 minutes to get back to earth.

RIP Cassini. Thank you to all the people who made it possible.

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

It's all fake.
You *know* they just did it all with mock-ups in a garage in Burbank.
The Earth is flat.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Not to really derail this thread...but are all the planets flat?

I read about Cassini yesterday, it is rather sad news but not really in a terrible way.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
