Those images have got to be fakes- When you think about it, it's obvious- There hasn't been enough time for the film to be back from being processed!

Poor, poor Messenger

Apparently, the Messenger probe, currently orbiting Mercury was also taking a picture of the Earth, and Presumably Saturn, at about the same time. Poor Messenger. Cassini gets all of the glory.

@Garcia: You have made me remember the history of how Carl Sagan managed to convince the NASA to reverse the Voyager and take a picture to the Earth

Carl Sagan was a great man -- he instilled so much enthusiasm into everything he did and -- by that -- set a lot of young people heading to careers in science and technology.

@Susan: Yet, some people may be beyond hope.

Oh, so cynical for one so young :-)

@Max, From what I've heard, everyone who has gone into space and seen the Earth below them has undergone a life-changing experience (even bigger that when I first discovered the power of beer).

Maybe for most people. Yet, some people may be beyond hope. I can see the jokes on Saturn now: is that really earth-shine or is that just so-and-so's (--insert favorite boviator's name here--) ego glowing?

@Susan: We really look very small from Saturn's perspective.

I woudl love to have a spaceship equipped with a "faster than thought" drive and to be able to zip around the solar system -- the Milky Way -- and the universe to just "see stuff"!!!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
