Eat Yer Heart Out, George Lucas


How seriously cool is this picture of Dione, one of the moons of Saturn, as snapped from 310 miles away during a fly-by of the Cassini spacecraft?

Clench-fisted Yips! to the Commissar.

'tis one of the gooviest pics I've seen in a while. I've croped / expanded it to fit a 1152 864 desktop wallpaper if you'd like it.

That is a gorgeous pic. It's amazing how many great photos are being taken - and released. Too many to post, unfortunately.

Makes me wonder if we're gearing up for a push into the final frontier [and the requisite funding].

I certainly hope so!
