Ring rain is coming down
Ring rain
Ring rain is pouring down
Pouring down all over me

I have stood here before inside the pouring  ring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

The ring rain went away but I understand it's coming again some other day because little Neptune wants to play.

I was told that we can only explore space by sending people?

Have you felt yourself to be exploited in any way?

Do you make up these questions Mr Holden? Or do they write then down for you?

Not to Saturn rain on your parade or anything, but I doubt you we're told that. You just say that you were, and you say it over, and over, and over...

I don't understand. Was that a statement or a question?

Oh no no, there are many Farkers who fervently believe that sending people 0.1 planetary radii up somehow makes for magical observations that are just not possible from the ground.

I mean what else does "manned space exploration" mean? People haven't gotten further than LEO for 40 years, so what else can it be?

I'll bet there's a lot you don't understand?

I have him on ignore.  Much easier that way.

Then you just get a thread full of people quoting him. It's just going to be like this unless the staff steps in, and I don't see that happening.

These guys have used the 10-metre Keck Telescope in Hawaii to take infra-red images showing water streaming down from the and flooding Saturn's upper atmosphere.

Down from the what????

It's like ionized raaaaaaiiin on your gas-giant's ionosphere!

...nah, just doesn't have the same *ahem* ring to it.
