"[S]ponge-textured moon" is a very good description.

The Cassini spacecraft is an example of what I find most hopeful and compelling about humanity, and why I think that we're going to avoid self-destruction.

It's human curiosity writ large, a multi-billion dollar mission with the sole purpose of finding out what's out there, with no hope of immediate exploitation of whatever is found.

It's also a very sophisticated endeavor, a testament to our technical ability, and our capacity to influence and manage our environment - which is why I'm not at all concerned about global warming, should it prove to be a real phenomenon.
We'll just adjust and drive on.

Hyperion is about 250 kilometers across, rotates chaotically, and has a density so low that it might house a vast system of caverns inside.

The five billion year old alien Earth-seeding ship ?

I'm amazed that a body so small by planetary standards, an asteroid basically, can survive the massive gravitational pull of Saturn without being ripped apart. The unmanned space missions continue to amaze me with their accomplishments, which is why I am not so put off by the lack of progress on the manned space front.
