Although "Moons" is rather off-topic from her usual expertise, the talk came about whilst researching the images returned from Cassini-Huygens. Although the splendid images of the planet Saturn impressed, it was the images of the Saturian moons that intrigued. Further research brought to light more and more amazing images of moons around the solar system and so the talk was born, primarily to bring awareness to the general public of local space environment and the opportunities that await space exploration.
