I felt a tug too to think of lonely fatheful Cassini ending up in minute fragments but if we couldn't bring it back then I suppose that was the best result. A lonely existence to land somewhere and sit for years beyond number. Thank goodness to someone else knows we have been here longer than 6000 years and evn though my grandbabies were sure when they were little that I played with Dinosaurs; No I did not.

Thanks for the post and the answers, Naut! It would be nice if we could have taken samples from Titan's lakes and other areas of interest. A shame about Cassini, in a way. Now I wonder, did we contaminated Mars or the Moon...

Perhaps one day the probes will come back hopefully not contaminated. Would you like to go to Mars? If you were young and carefree, remember it would probably be a one way trip, well I expect so in your lifetime.

I find this extremely interesting - learning stuff about Cassini and

de-germing stuff we send to outer space, & etc., but as I got to the end something came to mind.  Sometimes we hear someone say that they (or someone else) are as old as the hills. I guess we're not, except in the sense that the stardust from which we're made could well be.  :)
