Lesson #365: A Couple of Space Notes

A couple of space-related things for you today.

1. NASA and the ESA have released an image of Saturn’s rings captured by Cassini’s Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph. It shows a 10,000km span of the C and B rings (the two closest to Saturn itself) in colour that indicates the purity of the ice that makes up the rings, and it is very cool. The closer to blue, the purer the water.

2. The ISS has a live stream of what the astronauts are doing (when they’re awake) and of Earth (when they’re not). It’s really neat.

Space is awesome, you guys!
