    I, for one, am thrilled that it did launch (and that there were no problems during Cassini's subsequent Earth flyby in Aug. 1999). It should provide an excellent tour of Saturn.

    Hopefully we get some good close-up photos of Saturn's rings tonight.

    Wow! I'm watching NASA live TV now. Some of the pics were confusing. But the rest are beautiful!

    (1) try posting to the astronomy forum
    (2) try posting something specific to discuss (not slamming your good topic here...many of us have known about the mission for a while, given that it was launched 7 years ago, and are excited by it)
