Friday Links: May 28

I love Cassini. It launched when I was in college and I signed up for a mailing list where I'd get e-mails once a week or so detailing every system check, software update, course correction, etc. I had to get off the list when I left college because I was losing my e-mail address. Was never able to find out where to go to sign up again. Of course, it's all moot now as Cassini has been orbiting Saturn for quite awhile and sending back fantastic pictures of Saturn and it's moons. Here's some new ones. [link]
