We Sent a Robot to Saturn, This Is What We Got Back


Jul 25th | categories: Nerd Stuff, Video

Once upon a time, the nerds at NASA took a look up at planet Saturn and thought "f, dudes, we need some photos of that gas blob and it's icey/rocky/ginormous rings. So they built some robot camera thing - thankfully it didn't kill us on earth - and sent it hurtling towards the outer edge of our solar system.

The photos the Cassini space thingy sent back make the moons, rings, and Saturn itself look gigantically beautiful. A man took all these single shots and editted them together to make a veryGeorges Méliès "A Trip to the Moon" vibe to finished product.
