We have the technology!

Friday, January 14, 2005  

A joint mission between NASA, ESA, and the Italian space program just landed a probe on Titan, Saturn's largest moon! This is the kind og thing that just fills me full of steaming-hot awe! Even out f'ed up society has managed to fire a spacecraft clear across our solar system and land a probe on the surface of a distant moon. It took the craft 7 years to reach Saturn, but this morning radio telescopes around the planet tuned into the radio signal streaming data back from the distant probe. This kind of shit reminds me what "space-aged" really can mean. Who long until we set foot, not just probes, on extraterrestrial lands?
