7 miles per pixel
I love pictures of space, I check out APOD each day. I can't help but be amazed by the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn. Today the Huygens Probe sent back the first pictures from Saturn's moon Titan, thats about 750 Million miles away (about 9 times as far as the Sun is). I love reading sentences like: "The image scale is about 11 kilometers (7 miles) per pixel."
