Webcomic of the Day: Hyperbole and a Half Update
Allie Brosh, the artist behind the popular webcomic Hyperbole and a Half broke silence from her indefinite leave to release the second part of Adventures in Depression, which chronicles the author’s personal struggle with clinical depression over the recent years. The latest issue, which comes after more than year and a half of silence, has already garnered raving feedback in the webcomic community as an accurate representation of the debilitating mental illness and how it can affect relationships with others. To catch up on the first part, click here.

What’s that behind Titan? It’s another of Saturn’s moons: Tethys. The robotic Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn captured the heavily cratered Tethys slipping behind Saturn’s atmosphere-shrouded Titan. The largest crater on Tethys, Odysseus, is easily visible on the distant moon. Titan shows not only its thick and opaque orange lower atmosphere, but also an unusual upper layer of blue-tinted haze. Tethys, at about 2 million kilometers distant, was twice as far from Cassini as was Titan when the above image was taken. In 2004, Cassini released the Hyugens probe which landed on Titan and provided humanity’s first views of the surface of the Solar System’s only known lake-bearing moon.
