A Year of Cassini


Sign up for our email newsletter for the latest science news


The end of the year always elicits annual reviews of events, of course. They can be boring, funny, awe-inspiring, useless, and LOL-inducing. But it's not often you get one that's literally other-worldly. But that's just what Carolyn Porco delivers with her 2008 "Captain's Log" summary of a year of discovery from the Cassini Saturn probe. Even if you don't like the usual annual nostalgia, I think this is one you'll want to look at. Enceladus, rings, Titan, the planet itself: they're all there, with links to science and pictures that'll keep you warm on this New Year's Eve.
