* Goodbye Cassini

What an incredible mission, what an incredible spacecraft. It's been fantastic to see the press coverage on mainstream media, let alone all over the science blogs on the internet, during Cassini's final days and hours before being sent smashing into Saturn.

This article posted by Suzy on the Facebook page, by National Geographic, has some great images and videos. Check out our Facebook page for more too.

* Apologies for the lack of updates

I know I've been pretty quiet around here lately - especially with newsletter updates, website updates and more.
I've just been flat out with work - lots of travel, lots of new production releases, launching new products, trying to hire new people, projects with deadlines, shutting down old products etc..

I appreciate your patience - and I really appreciate the work Suzy and the moderators have been doing both on the IceInSpace Facebook page, as well as on the forums. It just wouldn't continue without them!

I'll be trying harder to allocate some time each week to keep up with what's happening and keeping the website updated etc.
Sorry again - but thanks for your visits, your community spirit etc.!

* Computers destroyed by hurtling them into planets

Thanks to Suzy for finding this one and posting it on the IceInSpace Facebook page
