Go where no man has gone before…

Yes, I love the movie, 2001, and as a boy I loved to build models of the moonshot rockets.  (This book is a really cool summary of the stunning images from that program.) But…in the end, I really think that manned space flight, at least right now, and as it’s being pursued, is a waste of effort. 

Let’s hear it for the unmanned space probes like Cassini, that have brought us marvelous pictures leading to new understanding of our solar system!  In the picture here, an old mystery about one of Saturn’s moons is resolved.
