Carolyn,

Bravo on the false color exposure! Although, since Cassini orbits between Saturn and Uranus, couldn't we get some closeup exposures of a beautiful Uranusian false color image? I mean, all one has to do is spin the spacecraft 180 degrees and change angle a little, right. The blue is of such a vast and deep hue it extends one's imagination, much like Neptune. If Saturn is the only real gas giant to have a complex solid core, what about a small probe to the center of the planet, just to transmit telemetry back before it either blew up or froze? Also, some of Saturn's moons must be on the drawing board as proto-planets i.e. Titan, if we ever leap frog out that far. Could a moon be terraformed for colonization, and could Saturn one day turn into a star? Is that the plan after the Earth and Mars's resources are depleted?

Speaking of ephemerides...when are the stars going to align again, C.P..? What about the coincidence of 2012; year of the dragon in the Chinese calendar and the 11 year solar maxima occurring now? How did they know?

Carolyn, I'm deeply enamored by ring geology...It can't just be all ice and dust. There has to be some remnants of precious metals in there. Maybe a form of fuel, if we ever travel out to Sextor six...Maybe you could pilot Cassini through the ring...I'm sure you'de probably have to change your orbit, to more of a North-South heading...

F ring...I mean G string...!

Could Enceladus be a potential Earth if spicules, I mean...extremophiles really are erupting from Enceladus? The pressure of liquid metallic hydrogen fusion suggests that Jupiter, Saturn or dare I say, Uranus could turn into a Star one day...It would be nice to sample Saturn's interior, i.e. liquid metallic H2 if we could capture it with a probe, or replicate it wholesale on Earth!

So are we talking spicules here? Sodium...sounds like you're setting up conditions for the Miller-Urey experiment...Why not turn Cassini's gaze toward the interior of Saturn, Titan or Hyperion...so pretty! All hail liquid metallic Hydrogen!

God must have used science for the immaculate conception...But so many people have foregone God to get to science...?

Carolyn,
What say you of the interior...? It looks spooky, like you could hide something in there...But not too far, you'd run into H2 precip. I can't even imagine being able to view liquid H2 on that scale...By the way

Thank You

Carolyn,
What are the spetrometer readings for the rings...Are they gold, platinum, maybe rhodium...Because I've been privy to pictures of cigar shaped spacecraft mining Saturn's rings. I mean they're just rocks, right?

If the Northern pole is somewhat composed of CO2, then there must be a small thimble of breathable O2 at the very top.
