So have you heard about Cassini spacecraft? It’s a wahana antariksa yang dibuat untuk mengeksplorasi Saturn. It was launched back in 1997, and in 17:55 hari ini we receive its last transmission. That means Cassini’s being kinda as old as I am when it died. Intinya, karena dengan energi yang memang mau abis dan bakal mengakibatkan Cassini mati dan gabisa dikontrol orbitnya NASA mutusin untuk memberikan Cassini one final mission to go through: the Grand Finale. Cassini udah ngelakuin 9-year extension mission when its prime mission ended in 2008, dan Cassini bakal mengorbit Saturn untuk terakhir kali selama beberapa bulan dan tadi baru aja terjun bebas ke atmosfir Saturn untuk mencegah Cassini menabrak bulan Saturn ketika energinya abis supaya tidak mengkontaminasi bulan Saturn dengan bakteri atau mikroba yang terbawa dari Bumi.

Publik udah diberi tahu dari bulan lalu kalau Cassini bakal “menabrak” Saturn tapi gue gak nyangka bisa gak sesiap ini buat nerima Cassini pergi. Gue udah tau Cassini dari buku tentang luar angkasa pas 4-5 SD. Dan selama itu gue udah takjub dengan gambar-gambar saturn beserta bulan-bulannya yang Cassini foto. Diantara satelit yang mengorbit planet selain Bumi, hanya beberapa yang bisa sepopuler dan seberpengaruh kayak Cassini. Bagi orang awam mungkin emang enggak begitu mengerti kontribusi dari Cassini selain dari judul berita yang kadang-kadang sensationalist kayak “ALIENS IN SATURN’S MOON????” tapi bagi space enthuiast Cassini was such a huge deal.

It discovered countless new moons and did notable flyby with couple of them, discovered there were huge geyser of water from Saturn’s ice covered moon Enceladus, discovered laked of methanes on Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, and mapped its surface more than ever before, studied more in-depth about Saturn’s rings and its atmosphere, took a photograph of the entire Saturn system featuring Earth in the picture as a pale blue dot, and brought a probe named after Titan’s discoverer, C. Huygens and made it lands on it as the only man-made thing to be landed outside of inner solar system and survived the impact!!, and of course countless stunning incredible images of Saturn with its rings and moons to made Cassini be the darling of space communities.

Space, in general, is such a huge part of me and I was kinda disappointed with myself I wasn’t able to choose it as my studies or studies it as my job because there a lot of things that human have yet to discovered and I really want to be a part of that. And knowing Cassini from that age made it for me kinda like a person that I know — a friend even, that I need to say goodbye with. And you know me as a sentimentalist, goodbye is rarely heard from me. I know spacecraft have a certain lifespan and that’s normal. But me being a weirdo it’s hard to let go a friend. I practically grew up seeing the images Cassini sent to earth and know how far we as humans have gotten it’s hard to imagine without Cassini. And knowing there will not a be another new data or photos of Saturn from up close for years because there is no future plan to explore Saturn’s system again just kinda makes this whole thing more depressing.

I know you won’t share the connection that I and Cassini shared, but I just wanted people to know that Cassini won’t go in vain. And it’s hard not to bawl when it sent the last transmission signal for the last time, its last voice. I’m happy though Cassini finally became one with a planet it had been orbiting and dancing for its entire lifetime. You will be missed dearly, Cassini.

tl;dr Cassini is dead, and I’m dead too in here.

Spies
I awake to find no peace of mind
I said, "How do you live as a fugitive
Down here where I cannot see so clear?"
I said, "What do I know
Show me the right way to go"

And the spies came out of the water
But you're feeling so bad 'cause you know
That the spies hide out in every corner
But you can't touch them no
'Cause they're all spies 
They're all spies

I awake to see that no one is free
We're all fugitives
Look at the way we live
Down here I cannot sleep from fear no
I said, "Which way do I turn?"
Oh I forget everything I learn

And the spies came out of the water
And you're feeling so bad 'cause you know
That the spies hide out in every corner
But you can't touch them no
'Cause they're all spies 
They're all spies

And if we don't hide here
They're gonna find us
And if we don't hide now
They're gonna catch us where we sleep
Ah and if we don't hide here
They're gonna find us

And the spies came out of the water
But you're feeling so good 'cause you know
That those spies hide out in every corner
They can't touch you, no
'Cause they're just spies.

Oh no, I see
A spider web is tangled up with me
And I lost my head

Oh no what's this
A spider web and I'm caught in the middle
So I turn to run
And thought of all the stupid things I'd done

And I, I never meant to cause you trouble
And I, I never meant to do you wrong
And I, well if I ever caused you trouble
And oh no, I never meant to do you harm

Oh no, I see
A spider web and it's me in the middle
So I twist and turn
But here am I in my little bubble

Singing that I, I never meant to cause you trouble
And I, I never meant to do you wrong
And I, well if I ever caused you trouble
And oh no, I never meant to do you harm

They spun a web for me.

And making more friends would be easy

Oh and I don't have a soul to save
Yes and I sin every single day
We never change, do we?
We never learn, do we?

So I wanna live in a wooden house
Where making more friends would be easy
I wanna live where the sun comes out.
Everything’s Not Lost
When I counted up my demons
Saw there was one for every day
With the good ones on my shoulder
I drove the other ones away

So if you ever feel neglected
And if you think all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons, yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

When you thought that it was over
You could feel it all around
Everybody's out to get you
Don't you let it drag you down

'Cause if you ever feel neglected
If you think all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons, yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

If you ever feel neglected
If you think that all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons, yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

Everything's not lost

So come on yeah
Oh oh yeah
Come on yeah
Everything's not lost.
Life Is For Living (hidden track)
Now I never meant
To do you wrong
That's what I came here to say
But if I was wrong
Then I'm sorry
I don't let it stand in our way

'Cause my head just aches
When I think of
The things that I shouldn't have done
But life is for living
We all know
And I don't wanna live it alone

Holla~ Assalamualaikum! HI! Salut! Shalom!

Halo wordpress, halo blog. Udah lama nih kita tak bersua-sua. Gila terkahir gue ngepost di bulan Desember, ini dashboardnya sampe banyak debu sama sarang laba-laba gini hahaha lebay abis-_-. Sebenrnya sih gue pengen posting post baru. Iya bener dah, suer dah, tapi udah berbulan-bulan yang lalu. Pikun nih awak.

Anyway, ada beberapa alasan kenapa gue jarang ngepost. Yang pertama, sibuk. Iya sibuk. Maklum aktor terkenal se antero dunia ya maklum lah kalo gak sempat nge blogging worpress-ing jadwal padet, banyak orderan (cateringan kali) di acara acara dari mulai makan malam kenegaraan di Buckingham Palace (fyi, si L, panggilan gue buat QE II, suka banget sama dawetnya bang Alex depan smp gue) sampe bukber sekolahan HAHAHAHAHA apalah.Gak deng boong, gue sibuk beneran nih, dihadang bener-bener sama tugas sekolah yang bisa dikatakan “mati satu, tumbuh seribu” dan yang juga bisa elu tau sendiri gue sebagai anak High School (ea) selalu berangkat sekolah dimana yang gue kutip dari temen gue,

“berangkat subuh, pulangnya magrib”

Masih untung gue masih rajin hadir, bandingin sama anak-anak yang tiap hari bolos melulu. Tuh Mah, bangga dong sama anakmu yang ganteng ini, mamah dimana engkau.. mamah… Hus bercanda doang mamah gue lagi tidur cantik di kamar jangan ganggu kalau enggak mau dimakan /eh.

Nah, alesan yang kedua nih. Hah? baru satu? panjang amat! udah terserah gue dong muahahaha /stop. Kadang-kadang gue suka ketawa sendiri jadi kalo aneHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA tuhkan kambuh. Tuhkan gue jadi lupa mau ngomong apa, kalian sih..

Jadi alasan kedua itu, teknik penulisan yang amburadul. Apa hubungannya emangnya? Gini gue jelasin. Jadi, salah satu alasan kenapa gue bikin blog itu supaya teknik penulisan artikel gue itu lebih bagus. Gini, kalo misalkan ada orang bule yang MUNGKIN enggak sengaja menemukan blog gue yang ece-ece ini, mereka pasti enggak ngerti bahasa indonesia, kan? Pasti mereka langsung buka google translate atau bong translator (biarpun gue ragu ada orang yang make bing) dan mentranslate-kan posting ini. Nah, tahu sendiri kan bahsa indonesia kalau ditranslate ke inggris terkadang yang ditranslate cuman sepotong-potong doang. Karena penguasaan bahasa gue masih belum pro, hal itu bakalan sering terjadi.

Coba kalian liat misalnya blognya Raditya Dika, terus coba translate salah satu isi postingan dia ke inggris. Pasti isinya nyambung semua, setiap kalimat di translatekan dengan benar. Itu karena dia udah berpengalaman nulis, jadinya jarang ada kesalahan seperti imbuhannya salah atau salah maksud jadinya orang asing dari Tajikistan pun bakalan ngerti postingannya dia.

Cuman dua itu ajah sih alasennya. Sebenernaya sih ada satu lagi yaitu guenya males tapi gue neggak mau orang tahu. Wait..

Oke, captain Santoni Out!

I found this poem at http://www.puisipuisi.com/puisi-cinta-sejati.html I’m sorry if the translating didn’t make any sense (I used Goggle Translate btw).

In Bahasa..

CINTA takkan cair di musim panas..

Takkan beku di musim dingin…

Takkan luluh di musim gugur…

Namun akan senantiasa berbunga seperti di musim semi…

Jalan menuju cinta itu tidak selamanya lurus..

Ada tikungan yang bernama KEGAGALAN..

Lingkaran yang bernama KEBINGUNGAN. .

Tanjakan yang bernama GODAAN..

Lampu Merah yang bernama KEJANGGALAN..

Lampu Kuning yang bernama PERDEBATAN..

Kadang bisa juga mengalami ban kempes yang bernama PERSELINGKUHAN..

Tetapi bila kita memiliki ban serap yang bernama KESABARAN…

Maka akan dapat ASURANSI yang bernama IMAN..

Asalkan kita mengemudi dengan modal KEPERCAYAAN..

Mudah-mudahan akan sampai ketujuan yang bernama CINTA SEJATI..

In English..

LOVE not liquid in the summer..

Will not freeze in winter …

Would not yield in the fall …

But will always bloom like spring …

The road to love is not always straight …

There is a curve called FAILURE ..

Circle called CONFUSION…

Hill called TEMPTATION …

Red lights called IRREGULARITIES…

Yellow lights are called DEBATE …

Sometimes it can also experience a flat tire called THE AFFAIR …

But if we have a spare tire called Patience …

it will be named FAITH INSURANCE ..

Provided we are driving with a capital of TRUST …

Hopefully will get to ketujuan called TRUE LOVE ..

Sudah berapa kali entah kau mengacuhkan diriku.
Menganggap diriku tak disitu.
Sudah beribu kalinya kau percayakan orang lain daripada diriku. Menganggap aku lemah, tak bisa apa-apa.

Sakit, perih, kau lukai ku berjuta-juta kalinya.
Hatiku mengerut, bagai ditekan batu berton-ton beratnya.
Hatiku mungkin sudah terkikis akan perbuatan mu, seperti batu yang tanpa henti digerus ombak.

Kau berbuat seperti itu semenjak kejadian itu.
Kejadian yang telah menghilangkan rasa hormat diriku kepada mu. Kejadian dimana kau menganggap aku seperti daki,
Jamur
Debu
Kotoran
Sampah
Mungkin kau selamanya akan terus begini,
Sampai dimasa kau tak akan bisa lagi minta maaf kepadaku.
