Gotta love Cassini.
There's so much hype about Mars exploration, but the stuff from Cassini beats all of that in my opinion. It really feels like an alien world being explored.
Heck, Huygens landing video gave me thrills like no other science news ever.

I like the artist rendition coloration, makes the pics look really cool in the above. I should add the south pole also has a hurricane that was spotted prior. Are these constant or do they gradually dissipate?
