Lake On Titan Winks From a Billion Kilometers Away 139

The Bad Astronomer writes "NASA's Cassini spacecraft took an image of Saturn's giant moon Titan earlier this year that serendipitously provides proof of liquid (probably methane) on its surface. The picture shows a glint of reflected sunlight off of a monster lake called Kraken Mare (larger than the Caspian Sea!). Scientists have been getting better and better evidence of liquid methane on Titan, but this is the first direct proof."

Comment Re:Visual Studio Express is quite good (Score 1) 1055

Lately I have had to write code in Visual Studio and I find that I don't like it at all.
It seems like for every little task I have to fight it every inch of the way.
The IDE assumes that it knows more than I do and so tends to get in the way.

I would much rather deal with emacs or vi since I can get them to do what I want
with little effort. These editors may not have the cute graphics but they do have
the virtue of doing what I want.
