You're quite right, Rob, my error ohmy.gif I've now fixed my blog entry.

Hey, no worries, I'm just glad to hear that things are less-than-half-as-bad as we thought.

As for the delay in getting the pictures up, I'm guessing hunger may have had something to do with that. We'll likely see the images as soon as the team members finish eating supper.

I live only a few miles from JPL.

You think I should drop some pizzas off at the front gate on the way home? rolleyes.gif

Here's another of the saturnshine images - a composite of three frames. Not very pretty...

This is a *huge* relief. I was starting to think that maybe, just maybe this was something worse than the impression I was getting from the JPL news release and from what has been posted here by those with detailed knowledge of the sequences/observations. Still would have been very far from disastrous but now the loss seems minor so I'm happy again smile.gif.

I'm glad to realize most data could be stored.
We have all outbound observations till 630 m/pxl (REGMAPTRL001) and this nice global coverage:

An extra encounter after the extended mission would be desireable to fill the gap at the longitude of the snowman and the polar (mainly the southern) regions... wink.gif

So raws, come on...

I'm posting the strangest image right here (just in case CICLOPS can't handle the load biggrin.gif), it's one of the strangest ones I've ever seen so it deserves to be shown here:

Is the bright stuff actually the overlay? blink.gif What the hell could have caused the dark stuff to accumulate in just some craters like that with no wind???

Yep, so this encounter was a disaster...

NOT!!

Wow, people will be busy with this for a LOOOOOOOONG time.

If the dark material is on top, it's like it was sputtered out of something in clumps. Maybe someone was playing paintball on Iapetus.

Right. This is crazy.

I thought Hyperion was the weirdest looking thing I would ever see. I was wrong.
