Space: The final frontier

These are the voyages of the robotic spacecraft, Cassini–Huygens
Its few year mission
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new rings and new dynamic behavior of Saturn's satellites and atmosphere clouds
To boldly go where no man has gone before…

A brief view from
CICLOPS Captain's Log

December 24, 2007:

A few pictures of the Titan liquid methane ocean, dunes form Titan’s Sahara desert as well as liquid water, organic materials and heat on Enceladus.

Most beautiful: Cassini picture of a total eclipse of the sun seen from the other side of Saturn where you may see Earth as a pale blue orb between the rings of Saturn itself (over a billion kilometers away)…

Are all this meant to change our self perspective, make us appreciate more our unique planet?

Well I sure have found more inspiration in this as I would like to imagine humanity as a model citizen of the Universe and Earth as a blue diamond between the Federation of Planets.
