Saturn, the movie


This extraordinary excerpt is from an upcoming Imax movie that uses Cassini orbiter imagery (NO computer generated images) to create some stunning flybys and flythroughs of the Saturnian system. Cassini has taken so many high-res pictures that this stitched together footage is possible. All I can say is "wow". We truly are a species that has left the confines of its home world. The full scoop on this movie project is at the Outside In site.
