Husband, Wife & One Dog:

Our adventures in owning a new home, raising a dog, living thriftily, creating an edible yarden, being an auntie & uncle. And also some science, librarian and nerd stuff.

You guys like Saturn, right? Here’s a whole gallery of Saturn GIFs, from rings to moons, captured by the Cassini spacecraft. They’re part modern art and part science.

Next to the Voyager twins, I think Cassini might be the best satellite NASA ever launched. Certainly takes the best pictures. Tumblr’s own staceythinx  has an iPad app called Cassini HD that features even more photos, plus color, plus science.

My favorite planet (so far). For more Saturnian wonder, explore Cassini Imaging Scientist Carolyn Porco’s TED Talks; discover what we’ve just learned about Saturn; and mark your calendars for one of the most astronomical IMAX films to ever grace the screens: In Saturn’s Rings!

“Librarians’ values are as sound as Girl Scouts’: truth, free speech, and universal literacy. And, like Scouts, they possess a quality that I think makes librarians invaluable and indispensable: they want to help. They want to help us. They want to be of service. And they’re not trying to sell us anything.”
