Seriously "The Peaks Of Eternal Light"? Space tourism needs language out of the large paperback fantasy genre.

I was surprised to read that the Great Red Spot is so young!

Of course it's young. If it were old, it would be known as the Great Liver Spot.

It's where all the New Age hippies will go - interstellar Sedona.

Wow! Amazing pictures - so much easier to grok than serious data from NASA et al. Two roundtrip tickets to Enceladus, please.

Somebody get cstross on the blower - he needs to put out an illustrated edition of Saturn's Children with these pix. My favorite space tourism novel - well, there's more to it than that but crisscrossing the solar system is part of the fun - would be even more of a blast with pictures of the scenery.

ammonium clouds and deadly storms aside, a sunset on Saturn looks pretty nice.
