    I thought I'd share this - a very cool interactive 3D tour of the Cassini mission. Well worth a look and read. Enjoy !

    P.S. Some ridiculously complex orbital mechanics going on here for this spacecraft - the maths for this are insane ! This is GR in action, ladies and gentlemen...whoever still doubts that GR is a good, valid, successful theory, needs to take a look at the above link. We can argue and discuss about relativity until the moon turns blue, but at the end of the day this is what really counts - putting it all into action, and seeing it work.
