No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

I like this portion of text from the article on Titan's big lakes of liquid fart:

"People ask me if you could bring it to Earth, and that's a dumb idea on many levels. But what you might not realise is that there simply wouldn't be enough oxygen here to burn it all,"

It's the way he said it is a dumb idea, makes me wonder who thought of the idea in the first place to be awarded an ignobel prize... :-rofl2

The abundance of both methane and water within the outer planets gives mankind the opportunity to construct habitable stations on the first step to colonising the solar system. The inner planets were always unlikely to be a springboard, Mars was never more than a flag waving opportuity, though it works well as a gravity assist point (in conjunction with Venus) to get craft and materials to Jupiter.
