I’m not really one for keeping bucket lists or things like that, but I still have a list of things I’d like to see before I kick the bucket, which isn’t going to happen anytime soon, since I plan on living until I’m 100.
But one thing on that list I know I will never actually see is the mighty planet Saturn up close and personal since, you know, space travel hasn’t evolved anywhere close to sending luxury vacation spacecraft to other planets.
Alas, the best I can do to get my Saturn fix is to visit the planet vicariously through the amazing photographs taken from the Cassini spacecraft, which has been exploring Saturn and its surrounding 150 moons for the last decade. This is truly some trippy, psychedelic stuff that definitely falls under the Strange But True category, so feast your eyes on the magnificence of the mighty Saturn!
I know … it’s not the same as kicking back sipping gin and tonics on the Observation Deck of an interplanetary luxury cruise ship, but it’ll have to do!
