Cassini lives on!
NASA's Cassini spacecraft is back in contact with Earth after its successful first-ever dive through the narrow gap between the planet Saturn and its rings.
As Cassini closes in on its end on 15 September, scientists are starting to risk increasingly dangerous manoeuvers to collect once in a lifetime science.
This wonderful robot was directed to dive through this gap of just 2000 kilometres, actually skimming through Saturn's upper atmosphere where atmospheric pressure was 1 bar - equivalent to Earth's at sea level.
It will be amazing to see what they've collected.

There is a Category 4 cyclone bearing down on my home state of Queensland right now.
Cyclone Debbie is huge and will take a huge toll on homes and farms.
A similar cyclone a few years ago saw all of Australia without affordable bananas for a year.
Here's a view of Debbie from the International Space Station.

Very cool Mr Branson, very cool.
He's going to gift a spaceflight to Stephen Hawking.
Date not mentioned. But Virgin Galactic have been quietly hard at work rebuilding after the fatal feathering error that caused their test craft to disintegrate fatally.

Almost, but not quite, into the nitty gritty of Saturn's A-ring.
This is the closest picture of the rings so far, with resolution down to about one kilometre.
Scientists are sending Cassini into increasingly risky situations as its mission draws to a close.

Pretty epic couple of weeks coming up for anyone interested in the stars.
What a coup for ANU Mt Stromlo Observatory and Dr Brad Tucker.
