I'm reading The Hacienda: A Memoir by Lisa St. Aubin de Terán. It takes place in the Venezuelan Andes. In 1997, I took a wonderful 9-day trip to Manu Biosphere Reserve in Perú. I hope to return to the rain forest some day....
A team led by Brett Gladman has discovered 4 new distant satellites of Saturn. See the
Cornell press release.

Saturn successfully completed the 2-point conversion, giving it a 22-21 lead over Uranus.

A possible future NASA mission that would image a lot of little moons is described in a poster talk at this week's Division of Planetary Sciences meeting in Pasadena.
