All these worlds are yours, except Europa. Attempt no landings there.

You know, amazing as all this movie stuff is, it is dwarfed by the wonders of the universe. Tonight, when I checked my mail and the BBC news site, I was gobsmacked to see a photograph of the surface of Titan. Physically, it's nothing spectacular to look at, but the amazing thing is... you can look at the surface of fucking Titan! For real! Seeing the surface of Mars took some beating, but they finally did it. This is big. This is fucking HUGE. I'm in a total geek frenzy over this, I really am. I can't wait to see the next set of photos.

Just as long as we keep away from Europa. We don't want to piss off the beings who created the monolith.
