Freaky Friday - How Good is our Technology?

I often mention on Freaky Fridays my fascination with science and advancements in technology. But even I was astounded when I learned that we now have the technology to detect a meteorite half an inch wide hitting one of Saturn's rings.

Saturn is approximately 746 million miles from Earth.

We now have spacecraft capable of detecting a meteorite crater only one half an inch wide in the galaxy. The one that detected this one is called Cassini. For more information including some stunning images from Cassini, visit NASA's website at http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/cassini/main/index.html.
