Really Exotic Place

Early tomorrow morning, the space probe Huygens will start descending through the clouds of Saturn's moon Titan. Pretty exciting stuff.

I don't know why, but this reminds me of one of my favorite sci-fi books, Cities in Flight, which I always thought would make a great ongoing series on the Sci Fi Channel. The premise is that a device called a spindizzy allows entire cities to leave Earth and become "Oakies," traveling the galaxy looking for work.

Extra credit: who is Huygens?
