Cassini Won't Probe Uranus

(Just an excuse to use Uranus in a headline.) Another coup for NASA, if they don't miss the planet altogether and if Huygens (the smaller probe) doesn't sink in a lake of liquid ethane on the moon, Titan. They tested Huygens' landing technique by setting a prototype down at Ted Kennedy's Complex near Martha's Vinyard, where the concentration of liquid ethane is ten times greater than on Titan. It's good (honestly) to see tax dollars continued to be spent on scientific causes, like space.
