Can we get some color pics. I understand thatthese probed go billions of miles, but we have the capability to bring about vivid color images. Human beings see in color. With color phyotos, we'd be able to discern the differences between land masses and whatever liquids are present on Titan. I appreciate what hs been donw this far.
