Correction to Cassini Costs and a Good Link

In my post yesterday on the potential loss of the last years of Cassini's extended mission at Saturn, I quoted the wrong costs for operating Cassini.  The correct figure is $60-65M per year, and not the $50-55M.  (The latter reflected a potential cut -- at the cost of a reduction in science conducted -- proposed for a past funding review.)

The following link provides a lot of detail on the current extended mission (through the end of Fiscal Year 2014) and the science results: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/opag/mar2012/presentations/OPAG_Thurs_morning/5_Cassini_Status_Spilker.pdf
