Space geek …

Well, I am gonna geek out on everyone this morning, lol. I’ve just seen some new images from the Cassini probe in the Saturn system. The link above is a movie of the descent of the Huygens probe when it landed on Titan last year, and it blew me away.

Maybe this is just the space geek in me talking, but watching the descent over an alien planet was truly fascinating for me. There are some other amazing shots coming out as well, and as someone who loves a well composed photograph, I was blown away by this one.

Now thats photo composition folks … not bad for a machine floating in space a billion and a half km or so away, eh?
