Very stunning and beautiful film.
This is the kind of stuff that interest me. Sorry, the Heat and basketball that everyone is going stupid over, it’s just not cerebral enough for me. I look at people in the streets jumping up and down, going nuts over a Heat win and I can only think simpletons. But that’s just me. I’ll be so glad when it’s all over. I’m sick of hearing about it.

I feel the same way…unless the Bulls would have beat the Heat of course lol. I can be both cerebral and a sports meatball at the same time.

This is awesome…it really puts a sense of place and time to the raw images that Cassini has been sending back. Our solar system really is a wonderful and fascinating place.

Stunning video. I love it at 0:19 when the planet scrolls up and a powerful major chord pounds. NIN and astronomy – a perfect fit. Thanks for posting this!
