Great Cassini Photo Collection
The Boston Globe has a great photo journalism series called The Big Picture which covers a wide range of newsworthy and photo-worthy subjects. Most recently: Cassini's Continued Mission with 24 awesome images of Saturn and its rings and moons. It's "continued" because Cassini's original four-year mission ended in June 2008, but the spacecraft remains in great health and the funding was made available. The extended "Cassini Equinox" mission will run through September 2010, with further extensions possible after that. NASA/JPL image.
