How could the Saturn photobombing get more awesome? I thought it was impossible. But no. Because it turns out WE WERE PHOTOBOMBING MERCURY TOO HOLY CRAP.



In other news, Humuhumu is nine months old on Friday. I have no idea how that went so quickly. She is now capable of crawling and of pulling up to an aided standing position on furniture, cardboard boxes, the cat, etc. She has even stood unaided for a few seconds a couple of times before she realised what she was doing and plopped back down on her butt. She has cut her first tooth (lower right front). She has recovered from a bout of combined tonsillitis and cold, which was suffered simultaneously by her parents. To her credit, she was in a far better mood throughout her illness and teething than we were. She can say "bababa" and "dadada" and "mamama" all day long and has accidentally copied a few words ("water"*, "tuba"**, "cat"). Despite her runny-nosed dribble-faced aspect, she continues to be highly kissable.

* When she was being sprayed with the hose on those hot hot days recently, we kept saying "water" and she copied us."
** While we were in Brussels, I bought her one of those fitted-piece puzzles with knobs. Except instead of farm animals or numbers or simple geometrical shapes, it has surrealist objects from Magritte's paintings. Her favourites are the tuba, the apple, the skybird and the feetshoes.

I can't quite believe how much she loves it. She shares it with her friend S, and it's just hilarious to watch them facing one another, solemnly munching on the skybird and the feetshoes.

I was very impressed by these images too. It's so sobering to think that everything we've ever personally travelled to or touched is on that tiny speck in the distance. when human beings travel these sort of disances it's really going to mess with their heads!

I hope we can at least get to Mars in the next couple of decades. I think an orbital/sling-shot/non-landing mission should at least be possible relatively soon.

I think it will happen quite soon, although my money's on private enterprise doing it first, not any national government.
