During a three hour conversation with a friend back east today I said something like "How about those Titan photos?" He didn't know what I was talking about and it occured to me that lots of people probably don't even know about the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn and Titan. What I'm trying to say here folks is that we can look at photos from an alien world. That's pretty futuristic.
Yeah, I know it's only a moon and not technically a world but try telling that to the giant methane-drinking humaphants who live there. For those of you who are not scientifically in-the-know, a humaphant is a giant human-like elephant type creature with lots of blubber that lives on very cold moon worlds near Saturn. Come on people, read the news.
