for me, this moon is more fascinating than Enceladus. i understand processes that produce geysers. i can wrap my mind around the process that produces the color dichotomy. it's that equatorial mountain range that really gets me. the leading hypothesis i've seen is sound, but i wonder if there is more to it. i remember Arthur C. Clarke predicting that mountain range. as Carolyn Porco said "How did he know?"

Sergio and company: Every time we release images to the public -- if they are special enough -- they are posted by a `fan' of mine on Facebook under facebook.com/carolynporco Hope that helps. Enjoy!

Iapetus Monolith: For the answer, read my article in December 2008 edition of Sci American. (Article can be found here: http://www.ciclops.org/sci/papers.php , Look under 2008 for Porco, C. "The Restless World of Enceladus", etc..)

Like stowaway and Red-dragon, Ciclops has been a regular stop for me every day i have web access. Usually my last stop. i like to spend as much time here as i can. i have been able to relate so much that i have seen in these images to orbital dynamics, gravitation, "geo"physics, and a great deal more. i have enjoyed the woderful learning experience that has been Cassini to date, and look forward to more. i have also learned a lot from the insiteful and inteligent comments from many of the Sector Six Aliance members. all together, this has made ciclops my favorite web site. I think having someone as talented and intelligent as Carolyn Porco leading the team, that has no shortage of intelligence or talent anywhere, may have something to do with that. Here's hoping those immensely talented engineers at JPL get our little robot friend back on line soon.

Another amazing capture of Nature's electromagnetic dance. Thank you, Carolyn Porco and your team. You keep topping your previous achievements. Robert Riccardi, M.D.

Dr. Carolyn Porco, will you please refrain from using the terms "believed" and "belief" in a scientific context. Only ancient peoples and bloody freaking creationists have 'beliefs'! Real scientists do not 'believe' or have 'beliefs'; instead, they hypothesize or have hypotheses; they conjecture, surmise, speculate, presume, or infer. Finally, when the facts are known, it then becomes an established theory. The English language has no shortage of suitable words to use in a scientific context, so there's no bloody excuse for using 'weak' words. Thank you. P.S. The Bad Astronomer, Dr. Phil Plait, will confirm that I am a nitpicker!

i just read the Scientific American article. i can enthusiasticly recomend it. a very good presentation of what is known and is not known about the enigmatic little moon. and a good presentation on what the energy source might be and why some hypothesis have been eliminated. sometimes the best moments in science are when a great big question mark is uncovered. i think this is one of those moments. Great article Carolyn. thank you. (there is even a small photo of Carolyn Porco with a blue eyed friend.)

I really like this image of Saturn and its edge on rings. I am also really looking fordward to the next flyby of Enceladus, Saturn moon on Oct 31st 2008. I want to see the [trenches or tiger stripes] again to see if any thing has changed since the last flyby. Go Cassini. I will expect another great success. Carolyn Porco will be as excited as i am to see the first images on Oct 31st, coming back to Earth.

Saturn has always been my favourite planet since I was 11yrs old when I first looked at it through a telscope. You never forget that. I couldn't sleep for hours that night after that. The beauty of Saturn lends itself to beautiful music, but what is beautiful music is often a matter of opinion. I agree with Kevin just play your own and what you think is beautiful. If Aliens landed in front of me one day and offered me a ride somewhere in their spaceship I would have to say "Take me to Saturn, Titan and Enceladus please". Do you think thats asking too much? I might be pushing it too if could ask if I could bring Carolyn Porco with me because i have a feeling she would appreciate it. Jason (Sydney)
