Cassini Gives Us Gorgeous Images of Saturn

Cassini Gives Us Gorgeous Images of Saturn

Cassini has been around Saturn for eight years now, and the giant ringed planet's seasons are changing for the first time since our arrival.

What seems so normal now was a rare occurrence before the war: women working real jobs (and getting paid to do it). World War II really changed the way the world saw women in the workplace, giving them a place there to begin with. Blogs.Babble.com posted an article including 20 photos of these hard-working women -- a movement that led to the now-famous "We Can Do It" slogan.
