Happy 64th Birthday, Sir Paul!

Former Beatle Paul McCartney, who cowrote “When I’m 64?” is 64 years old today. Beatle fan and Saturn Cassini Imaging Team Leader, Carolyn Porco wrote a thoughtful entry on her team’s site, as well as created and directed a large AVI movie of 64 Saturnian views to celebrate the occasion. (Mac users will need the free “VLC” program to view this 147M file).

Carolyn has been with NASA for a long time, and she was the first person to notice “spokes” in the rings of Saturn. She has been in many documentaries on space exploration, and has always impressed me how she can put a uniquely warm, human perspective on the discoveries we make in the solar system. Her enthusiasm for her work has long been a source of inspiration for me.
