Serving Your Space Porn Needs Since 2006

The Big Picture has posted a stunning selection of images taken by the Cassini orbiter during Saturn's equinox. Do I need to tell you to get over there right away and check them out?

Those are spectacular, Paul. This is the 2nd time that the Boston Globe has published a bunch of Saturn photos. I don't remember where I found that sequence, but I do remember the photo you posted of an unknown onject passing through a ring, or a gap between rings. They are all in my computer and on a USB stick.

God, are you allowed to post links to hardcore like that on blogs?

Spooky sounds from JPL.

"Spooky sounds from Saturn" sounds so much like Krell music. I'll have to play this in the back ground when I re-read Gardens of the Sun.

George - I think it's the third set - check the links on this one.

~M - This is government approved. How could it not be legal?

You are right Paul. Here's what happenned. The Boston Globe lists three previous sets, 1,2,3. I downloaded 1 when you posted it. Later I only downloaded your freestanding photo of the "Ring Strike." My memory failed--Senior Moment--and I falsely thought that I had downloaded an entire set! Now I have my work cut out for me: downloading your present set and 2,3.

Your phrase "Space Porn" reminded me of Clarke's "technoporn." I cannot remember where he first used it. I use it often.
