Saying Goodbye to Cassini

“Cassini’s descent into Saturn was intentional. The spacecraft was rapidly running out of fuel, after spending nearly 20 years in space, and NASA scientists decided to make use of the mission’s inevitable conclusion. By crashing into Saturn, Cassini had the opportunity to see what the planet’s upper atmosphere is made of, and that’s the data that the probe sent back to Earth during its final few moments of life. The probe took its last images of the Saturn system yesterday (Sept. 14), and transmitted those images back to Earth the same day, ahead of its plunge.”

3 Hours to clean this unbelievable mess, Before and After.

The Grand Place in Aalst, before (8:00 am) and after the cleaning (11:00 am).

In Aalst they know how to party. You probably noticed this when I wrote a blog about it, but the city has surprised the world again with their cleanup team that they call “De koisploeg”. This amazing team seemed to succeed to clean this dirty square and its six neighboring streets up in less than 3 hours.

This is an English translation of what the local news HLN.be wrote:

A city which, after three hellish days and nights carnival celebration that is already so clean in 3 hours you ask? That’s Aalst it may seem. Last night were still 18,000 party goers at the Grand Place to the traditional – and emotional – burning of the effigy, followed by the longest and most intense party night of the three day event...
