Categories: Science and Environment

Huge lakes on Titan, Saturn?s largest moon -- salt water geysers on Enceladus, like ?Old Faithful? -- these are only two of the amazing discoveries of NASA?s Cassini Mission, as told by one of its top scientists in her own words.  Dr. Carolyn Porco eloquently takes us on a thrilling tour of Saturn and its moons, using the stunning original photographs taken by Cassini?s digital cameras and the astonishing images of its probe, Huygens, that actually landed across space on the surface of Titan.  Fly over Titan?s Lake Ontario and glide through the mists of Enceladus ... and wonder whether life hasn?t already started to emerge in their watery depths

Porco is truly one of the great science-communicators of our time (ie: think female Carl Sagan). Her expertise can only be matched by her passion for the Saturn system and space exploration. Porco is proving that science fact is more interesting, exciting, and exotic than any work of science fiction. "I see a species that is positively unyielding in its pursuit of knowledge, and brave and ardent in its longing to grasp the meaning and the significance of its own existent."-Carolyn Porco
