Tides are caused by Jesus. He loves the world so much, that he gives it a great big hug all the time. When he squeezes harder, the tides go down, and when he relaxes, the water goes right back up.

If Jesus ever stops hugging us, we'll all just fly out into space and pop like balloons.

Better article at Link (pops)

Particularly impressive is that they didn't measure Titan directly, but figured out that it underwent a 10m change in size by measuring the location of the spacecraft and deduced the change in Cassini's orbit due to the gravitational impact of the FARKING TIDE.

Wow, that's some strng evidence right there.

It took me a few confusing seconds of wondering what String Theory had to do with the whole thing, before I realized that wasn't the typo they made.

And with the Voyagers, launched all the way back in 1977, we're goin' interstellar. How freaking cool is that?

While some of the Voyagers' instruments are dead, their radioactive batteries still have some life left in them. At some point in the next 10 to 15 years, presumably well after both probes have crossed into interstellar space, they will go out not with a bang, but a whimper.

Pyne, for one, hopes the Voyagers will take one last picture before that happens - an image that shows a faint sun and might become as iconic as the pale blue dot.

"I don't know if there's enough power, but I sort of hope they might have enough for one of them to turn around and take a snapshot before it goes," Pyne says.

"Sort of a final postcard mailed to Earth: 'Here we are, wish you well.' "

At this point, where is there not water? It's in asteroids, meteors, moons...
