There is ONE thing i cannot understand: WHY FAHRENHEIT?? Everywhere in the world we use Celsius, everywhere in the scientific world we use Kelvin... why Fahrenheit? On an European - American Mission you should use a measurement that is internationally understood.

Does Cassini Imaging team or CICLOPS community know anyone who can help,refer or assist NeKto with a job, which is hope?

Nekto survived over 10 years being homeless by going to the library "enjoying the breathtaking and at at times startling images Cassini and Huygens cameras have brought us.
i would not have survived without them."

We all enjoy these breathaking and startling images too these past 10 years but lucky enough to not need them as "a refuge and a stress relief", as we manage to have a job these last 10 years. Really hope humanity can come in and make a difference.

Kind regards,
Bill

ten years ago today, i had been homeless for about half a year. i never had the opportunity to see the live coverage. i got to the library and found the images on the web.
in a world where too many believe they can assault and attack me solely because i am physically unable to sustain gainful employment, i am glad to have had the ten years of images and science here. it has been a refuge and a stress relief.
i am still homeless. have no hope of ever being anything else, and still enjoy the breathtaking and at at times startling images Cassini and Huygens cameras have brought us.
i would not have survived without them.

Carolyn, thanks for reminding us of that wonderful time. I did an outreach event at the Dallas Science Place the night of SOI with a live feed for the board members. Wonderful! Later, your "force of nature" passion during the Huygens event far outshadowed the unfortunate analogy by John Zarnecki's team that we just landed in Crème Brulee. Good thing ESA had you around to make it real as many viewers probably lacked sufficient context to square Huygens, Titan and Crème Brulee.

Thank you so much, Captain Carolyn. I remember distinctly Australian Boardcasting Corporation (ABC)'s science show Catalyst ran a special episode 10 years ago of the Huygens probe landing on Titan. The ABC reporter featured your very emotional and moving response that night of the Titan landing at European Space Operations Center in Darmstadt, Germany, ie, humanity has landed on Titan! It was a moment I will never forget, your raw emotions, displaying you being a truly great scientist. Your quest for the advancement of science to explore and understand and to guide and share with us the general public, for the betterment and benefit of all of us. Many thanks again for that unforgettable moment 10 years ago, Carolyn and what you and your team gave us all these years with Cassini of the Saturnian system and her wonders.

As a displaced Martian longing to go home, I have never been more proud of my species. We have accomplished much, but there is so much more to be done. The images we have are emotionally moving, astounding, and wonderful. Now, let's take our rock hammers in hand and go do some real hands-on science. And someone, please take me home.

Like our Captain, I too have been in awe over the images...with more to come. I wish we could bring Verne and a few thousand others back for a day to enjoy these wonders with us.
