    Good job and goodbye Cassini.
    I remember the protests right before Cassini was launched. Michio Kaku and other protesters were crying about the Plutonium-238 on board that might be released into the atmosphere in the event of a catastrophic launch accident.

              I don't really see this happening without some sort of major government investement, a bit like the jet engine during the second world war led to the birth of international travel we see and enjoy today . As for trips to the moon/mars , I think he needs to lay off the weed for a while .

                • Fourth Gravitational Wave Event Detected

                  For the first time ever, gravitational waves have been observed simultaneously by three detectors, enabling a relatively accurate localization on the sky. GW170814, as the signal is officially known, was also the very first gravitational wave "felt" by the Advanced Virgo detector of the European Gravitational Observatory near Pisa, Italy.

                    • China's Next-Gen FAST Radio Telescope Is Already Finding Pulsars: http://www.popularmechanics.com/spac...nding-pulsars/

                      Among the first of the next generation of powerful telescopes is China's FAST radio telescope, which was completed last year. FAST is a gigantic radio dish built into a natural depression in China's Guizhou province, and is the largest single-dish radio telescope in the world. It has the potential to see further than any other radio telescope in the world, and it's already making use of that ability to find distant pulsars.
