Tomorrow, the 15th of September 2017, the space Probe Cassini will take its final flight, and plunge into the fiery depths of the Planet Saturn!

A long mission and journey made possible by a team of dedicated Scientists and Engineers...>>>

It made me laugh as to why it must be burned up. That's to insure 'human microbes' don't contaminate Titan's atmosphere. Here we have a Paradise (Earth) and we are polluting IT everyday more and more. And nobody cares. It just don't make sense!

The fascinating stuff far beyond our Milky Way Galaxy!...>>>

..there is an awful lot of mind-boggling; "stuff" out there! ... :shock: ...!

Objects that we see in the sky above us that it is so far away, and the light has taken so long to reach us...(light-years).... that they are no longer there!

Inter-Stellar Space Travel?..... :think: ...don't bother waiting for the 'Bus anytime soon!.... :lol: ....!
