Cassini’s Extended Mission



Saturn, as see from the Cassini spacecraft

One of my favorite blogs, The Big Picture, has yet another fantastic display of high-res images of something stellar – this time, quite literally.  NASA’s Cassini spacecraft is almost a year into the mission extension of its four-year mission that ended in 2008.  There are 24 images there, so please check it out.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.  Alan Taylor’s posts are so freaking good it sometimes brings tears to my eyes.
