It's a decent achievement but nothing more imho.
Maths/Engineering. The mathematics have been around for centuries and the engineering is 'relatively' simple due to the inert nature of space.

Still nice to see the pics though and i'm glad you're a happy astronomer tonight

I'd hate to have to impress you

It's a massive achievement.

The maths hasn't remained static for centuries at all.

It's been a process of refinement for anyone who knows about these things. Also the engineering is truly breath-taking in its capabilities.

To send machines from this patch of the sky to these remote places truly speaks highly to human achievement.

As a species we need to eventually get off this rock.....All of these achievements are small steps required to help us in that aim......The most difficult but important aim.

Jeez, seems that I've taken a friendly kicking

Firstly: As we all know, satellites are hardly new. There's well over 2,000 of them currently orbiting the earth.
Secondly: Planets follow a known path.
Thirdly: The mathematics (see point 1+2) along with the engineering (see point 1) is relatively simple in this day and age when all we're sending is a robot into space a bit further than before.
To summarise: The engineers beef it up a bit and the mathematicians show it the way.

A good achievement but hardly enough to get carried away with imo but congrats to all involved.
Once again you've given us some lovely pictures of some rock and ice.
Well done you

Hardly a 'triumph' for the human race but interesting all the same.
Thanks for the heads up.


.. are you really sure about that!
