Cassini-Huygens Arrives at Saturn

When I wrote Clash Over Cassini, 2004 felt very far away. But the years have slipped past in a relentless march. Now, at last, Cassini-Huygens has arrived at Saturn. And I'm pleased to add another successful nuclear-powered space mission with no plutonium-related injuries or deaths to the list of such peaceful uses. Not that real-world experience will calm the speculative fears of anti-nuclear activists.

In December, the Huygens probe is intended to separate from the main vehicle in preparation for a descent currently scheduled to take place on January 15, 2005.


Wow...that feels like such a long time from now!

Is there anything in the above that is wrong? Do some of the statements make your blood boil? Do you want to give someone a piece of your mind? After all, you know more about these issues than almost anyone, and people should be listening to you!

Alas, you have yet to take the time to log in or register yourself.

Go on, join up! Become a citizen of Psidonia and let these nimrods know what's really going on!
