CAROLYN PORCO

How sweet it is! Richard Branson plans to smile on July 19 w/ the rest of us!!

He says:

"One of my favourite images is the Pale Blue Dot, a photo taken in 1990 that captured the Earth as a tiny speck of light from beyond the orbit of Neptune.

Then in 2006 Cassini took this awe-inspiring image of Earth from within the shadow of Saturn. Can you spot us?

Now it is time for an updated version of the Pale Blue Dot. On July 19th, the Cassini cameras will face the sun and capture the Earth, Saturn and its rings. It will be the first time human beings have known in advance their photo will be taken from a billion miles away.”

Richard is also promoting the two contests we are running at Diamond Sky Productions. If you are a photography buff who has thought about communication with extraterrestrials, or you are a music composer, consider entering!
