  1. I’m really looking forward to your news conference on the 26th.
    I know there are so many others who are eager to hear what you have learned. The anticipation is almost unbearable.
    Thanks for everything NASA.

  2. From what was presented today on NASA TV, it appears that very specific targets for further investigations at Enceladus have been clearly spotted, where both water ice, organic materials and energy seem to be present. I have two questions:
    1) what further steps can be taken with Cassini to find whether temperatures are high enough near the surface for liquid water to exist?
    2) will it be possible to produce high-resolution topographic maps from short sequences of near-surface Cassini images?
    Also, wouldn’t you agree that these ‘tiger stripes’ are becoming the top location in the solar system to visit next? It does increasingly seem that, despite their greater distance to the Earth, it is a lot easier to get there than to an undefined location of a possible Europa underground ocean buried under tens of kilometers of ice, in a high radiation environment and at the bottom of a much deeper gravity well than that of Enceladus…
