In our pursuit to understand the solar system we find ourselves in, we sent an explorer to the Saturnian system. The Cassini Spacecraft sent back amazing new data and images of Saturn and it's 62 known moons, 46 of which were unknown when it left. We learned that the moon, Enceladus, may have everything it needs to support life deep in it's global ocean, Titan has a liquid methane sea, and so much more.

Last year, low on fuel after twenty years in space and so much information gained, Cassini took several dives between Saturn and it's rings to learn a little more before it's mission came to an end. To avoid possible microbial contamination of any of Saturn's moons, Cassini dove and burned up in Saturn's atmosphere, while sending back it's final data.

Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $177 per hour. I work through this link, SalaryHd.com

So the whole "Dear Moon" mission the Japanese Billionaire is doing and is taking artists to the moon (supposedly). Instantly thought of your art, thinking what you'd make if you were to go by chance, lol. Your art is extraordinary.
