Camonk - 2009-02-18 To me, the coolest thing about stuff like this is that people use just math and their brains to say, okay we launch the craft at this time and it goes this fast and look seven years later it lands right where we want it to. That is badass.

oddeye - 2009-02-18 We could if you wanted to make your cars cost ninety bajillion dollars like these probes do.
However, it's all money well spent if it leads to things like this.

RockBolt - 2009-02-18 We need to be sending a constant stream of probes with badass cameras in every direction in the solar system dammit
CharlemagneJackson - 2009-02-19 These types of videos are so simultaneously humbling and flattering. The universe is so enormous and alien and glorious, and yet we upright monkeys fling our metal servants across an unimaginable vastness for the purpose of pretty pictures. Awesome.
Screwtape - 2009-02-19 Oh crap, we have violated the edict of the monolith.
