  3. Before this thread gets hijacked by the theists again, let me just say this, THERE IS NO GOD!

  4. There's a small dark spot on the far left of the image of Saturn, slightly below the ring. Is that the shadow of a moon that's not described in the info above? Any idea which moon?

  5. I wonder if Sarah Palin can see this from her backyard?

    re:Bading
    Does believing in God preclude someone from believing that the planets exist?

  8. Speaking of space porn, the Bad Astronomer (who's actually quite good) posted a picture of Titan with Rhea just peaking out from behind it that I think our sisters would appreciate.
