Stormy on Saturn. Take yer wellies if you're heading out there.

Acquiring its first sunlit views of far northern Saturn late last year, the Cassini spacecraft's narrow-angle camera recorded this stunning image of the vortex at the ringed planet's north pole. The false color, near-infrared image results in red hues for low clouds and green for high ones, causing the north-polar hurricane to take on the appearance of a rose. Enormous by terrestrial hurricane standards, this storm's eye is about 2,000 kilometers wide, with clouds at the outer edge traveling at over 500 kilometers per hour. The north pole Saturn hurricane swirls inside the large, six-sided weather pattern known as the hexagon. Of course, in 2006 Cassini also imaged the hurricane at Saturn's south pole.

#livejump  #stratos For those of us in the UK, MDT is 6 hours behind, so launch should be about 18:30 GMT.  I reckon jump should be roughly 21:00 GMT.

Hot tip for the future of all live performance: Auto-synced mashups of the audience's video footage. This is going to be huge for music gigs!
Dropping some time-synced tweets into the mix would be cool too... That part's my idea. You heard it here first. Ka-ching ;-)

Bye bye Synergy old pal.  AAH Meditel made a great database that stood the test of time (from System 5), Torex put a great user interface on it (System 6000 + Premier = Synergy), then iSoft screwed up the business.
