Saturn Article was created by SeanOSullivan

Hello all,
Just to give you a heads up, in the December issue of National Geographic there is a good article on Saturn, its moons and the cassini mission. Included with it is a pretty cool poster of the new solar system layout and future space missions planned. The cosmic ballet continues, eh! :roll:

Sounds like a good article, and even a nice poster.
That will be worth alot in the future as one of those that was printed in the 2-3 years of madness where we only had 8 planets :lol:

In fairness, they do have Pluto and Eris on the front (and Sedna on the back) .
All you have to do is tippex out the dwarf planet bit and change the big 8 to a 9 (or 10) :D

It is a good one all right Dave and the poster is cool, they always do good space related posters, the majority of which are wallpapering my spare room. It mentions in the article that the International Astronomical Union are going to give dwarf planets which orbit beyond Neptune a special category, as yet untitled! That should be interesting.
So all those early maps before 1930 are back on the wall again. :D
