NASA's Cassini spacecraft is now a nearly a year into its extended mission, called Cassini Equinox (after its initial 4-year mission ended in June, 2008).
I've always been fascinated by space and what's out there. Maybe it's the fact when I was growing up there was the race to the moon and before that was the race to put a man into space. Now days of "users pays" if you have the cash you can go into space and hang out in all that Cosmic dust. Just don't tell mom, as Omo may not be able to get the dirt out.
