  • Once upon a time, a family from Mali built a probe called ASK. They used just a pen to write the name on the probe. Just before launch, ASK suddenly spoke: "I am going to Saturn!".

    Later, when ASK landed on Saturn, it said: "Uhh! It's cold here". Despite the cold, ASK could take three pictures from Saturn's surface: one of an insect moving into a crater; another of a dried plant; and another of a landscape. It then sent the pictures to the malian family.
