Waltz Around Saturn

Waltz Around Saturn with this video by Fabio Di Donato showing highlights from Cassini’s exploration of the giant planet, its magnificent rings, and fascinating family of moons.

This video shows a selection from more than 200.000 pictures taken by the Cassini Spacecraft around Saturn’s Rings in a period between 2004 and 2012, published through the Planetary Data System between June 2005 and June 2013 – If you want to know more about the mission please visit saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/

For an in-depth explanation of what you can see in this video here is a great article by Phil Plait:

Edit by Fabio Di Donato. The video is dedicated to the memory of Margherita Hack, astrophysicist and popular science writer (2013)… She made me love the stars.
