this is one of the most stunning images Cassini has ever taken, and he has taken so many. Can't believe that old friend will soon have to collapse into mighty Saturn :-(

Things happening in there are so crazy.. One of my secret dream would be : "See 1000 years into the future" Maybe we'll find out something to realize this dream..
