The Titanese Times
On the use of Titanese: it has been rather difficult to come up with a suitable adjectival form for Titan. Titanian would be the obvious first choice, but that could become easily confused with the adjectival form for the Uranian moon Titania. Titanic has become a favored form for some ISS team members, but it is unsuitable for me since it just brings to mind a very BAD movie. Titanese is also a possibility, though the -ese suffix is usually limited to nationalities from east Asia (Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, etc.). However, given the unsuitability of the first two, I am forced to concede to Titanese. If anyone has any other suggestions, don't hesitate to send me an email.
As stated in the intro, I will strive to continue to post on this blog for news primarily for Titan and Io, though I can't ignore the other satellites, except Europa, that moon will get no press here. Why? Because I feel like it. This blog will also not cover Mars, because it is not an outer planetary satellite and it gets enough press elsewhere. I will also post on the other Saturnian satellites as new results come in and are published. I may occasionally sway to other topics, like politics, but given the current political climate, I may try to avoid that. We'll see.
In terms of contributions, I will obviously look at them and post them as I see fit. Since this blog has a fairly small audience, I don't think an additional author is needed, but if you want to offer your services, I'll look into a dual author or team authorship arrangement, however I'd rather not have a site run by committee.
I'm going to sign off for now though later today, I hope to publish my thoughts on the recent Huygens images. Titan certainly looks like a very interesting place that continues to astound, amaze, and confuse.
