NASA's Cassini spacecraft recently observed an incredible storm on Saturn. This storm is the longest ever recorded on Saturn, and also produced the biggest "tropospheric vortex" ever seen there!

This storm was unique in that it spun around the entire planet until it met up with its own tail, causing it to spur itself out. Scientists have never seen this happen anywhere in the solar system before.

Be sure to write you representatives and express to them how important it is for NASA to contribute to these collaborative missions with other space agencies. We are learning more and more about our place in the cosmos every single day, and this is just one more example of that simple truth.

Soldiers could one day conduct covert operations in complete secrecy, now that Pentagon-backed physicists have figured out how to mask entire events by distorting light.
A team at Cornell University, with support from DARPA , the Pentagon’s out-there research arm, managed to hide an event for 40 picoseconds (those are trillionths of seconds, if you’re counting).
They’ve published their groundbreaking research in this week’s edition of the journal Nature.

Wed02 Did you know that the Dwarf Planet Ceres is believed to have more fresh water than Earth
Mark Rayman from the Dawn Mission was our speaker this morning and mentioned that after Dawn completes her mission at Vesta this summer it will move on to +Ceres to imvestigate how much what the embryonic planet might have.

from
http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/profile.cfm?Object=Dwa_Ceres

Scientists describe Ceres as an "embryonic planet." Gravitational perturbations from Jupiter billions of years ago prevented it from becoming a full-fledged planet. Ceres ended up among the leftover debris of planetary formation in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope observed that Ceres' rotation demonstrates that it has a nearly round body. Ceres' diameter at its equator is wider than at its poles. Ceres is approximately 580 miles (930 kilometers) across, about the size of Texas. And even though Ceres comprises 25 percent of the asteroid belt's total mass, tiny Pluto is still 14 times more massive.

But Ceres has more in common with Earth and Mars than its rocky neighbors. There are signs it may contain large amounts of pure water ice beneath its surface. Observations by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope show that Ceres shares characteristics of the rocky, terrestrial planets of our inner solar system. Computer models show that nearly round objects such as Ceres have a differentiated interior, with denser material at the core and lighter minerals near the surface. All the terrestrial planets - including Earth - have differentiated interiors. This sets Ceres apart from its asteroid neighbors.
