Titan Ho!

This superb image of Saturn's ring and southern hemisphere along with its mysterious cloud-shrouded moon, Titan (in the lower right corner of the image), was taken on Christmas Eve by the Cassini probe.
The European Space Agency's Huygens explorer successfully detached from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Cassini mothership during the evening of December 24th and will arrive on Titan January 14, 2005.
A bit of the joyful hope our human race is still capable of to balance the tragic comedy of yesterday evening's posting.
