...and they're planning on sending Cassini BETWEEN the rings of Saturn! Imagine sending something on a two billion mile trip with such accuracy and control that you can accomplish feats as precise as this, while performing serious research at the same time! We should all be proud of their success and applaud their efforts!

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.
