Cassini Division

No, not the excellent novel by Ken MacLeod, but the space probe which is fast approaching the ringed planet. Before the – hopefully – spectacualr fly through the rings of Saturn and the largest moon landing there will be an encounter with the smaller, somewhat mysterious moon Phoebe. As readers may well guess this erratic and odd little moon is named after the character Pheobe Buffet from Friends. Alas, the flight path will not allow for close examination of the other moons Monica and Rachel. Flight engineers said they could not accomodate all three into their plans due to fuel-weight issues and denied they were not taking high-res photographs and scans of Rachel because Brad Pitt had threaten to beat the crap out of them.
