Maybe titan can one day support humanity? This cassini trip is so exciting.
Sadly it would take way to long to send man to titan at least with our current tech. =/

Titan Story and Pictures at Ciclops

In January 05 Cassini will drop a probe onto Saturns moon Titan and hopefully show us a little about what is there with pictures!

Titan has thick, not breathable atmosphere but it can be terraformed. The largest problem is the Titan temperatures are too low.

That description was beautiful


Never has a picture of such a grey, lifeless world seemed so beautiful to me.

*Sigh*

Enough with the cheese, another great step in exploration and knowledge!

HobNob: It's actually orange in colour


I can't wait to see more photos of Saturn though. I too am excited about this Cassini mission. I just wonder if they will get any really close-up shots of the rings. Like being able to see the individual chunks of rock and ice. That would be really cool I think.

I sure hope the probe on titan gives us some pics. I don't think it will last too long on the surface, from what I remember reading.

Chances are you wont see any chunks of rock or ice. Most, if not all of the rings are made of particles milimetres across, after years of pummelling into each other and being squished and streched by saturns gravity.

The pics are cool none the less!!
