The question maybe "why?" but the answer is usually "why not?"

Dear Brian
That is quite something ! A really erie image !!!
Makes me think about changing my ideas about manned space probes.
But on second thoughts I cannot aford the fare.
However, it occurs to me that all these would be space-tourists currently lined up to fly to the edge of space by SpaceShip 123456............. will probably fly to the SS123456......... rocket launch site in Dustbin-Laden-land in their own private jets. creating yet more vapour trails messing up our putrid atmosphere.
Best wishes from Cliff
Ah well ! Bring back Werner Von Brawn all is forgiven (but not by me) !

I find Titan a bit spooky, Cliff. We can only wonder what slimey horrors lurk in those dark methane lakes. :lol:
The Cassini probe has been a great continuing success. They made the probe big and with plenty of redundancy built in, in contrast to Nasa's not-so-good "cheaper, smaller" philosophy.
