Outer Space – Mind Blowing Video from Jupiter and Saturn

Don’t hesitate 1 moment ! Look and listen to this mind blowing video of the Jupiter and Saturnian systems.

If you love the wonders of the hitherto unknown Universe unveiled before your eyes – and long to explore – feast your eyes on this short new video right now titled simply; “Outer Space”.

You’ll need to watch it several times in succession to catch all the revelations.

The video was created by Sander van den Berg using all original, raw footage from the image archives of NASA’s Cassini and Voyager missions. In less than two minutes it shows a tour de force of many of the most amazing and unexpected discoveries from the two largest planets in our Solar System.

Sander has stitched together astonishing image sequences from Jupiter and Saturn, their rings and moons in a way we have not seen before. He brings the swirling planetary storms to life, journey’s about the rings and fleeting moons and dramatizes the explosions spewing from mysterious Enceledus – that potential moon of life laden with water, salts and organic molecules.

See a moonlet dive like a dolphin, slithering through Saturn’s rings.

Sander has created an experience that exemplifies why we explore beyond our shores to places unimaginable until NASA’s probes plied by. He is a freelance editor and aspiring video director from the Netherlands.

And one day, when we triumph over the “Do Nothing” & “Can’t Do” nay saying crowd, a future generation NASA Space Shuttle will journey beyond Earth and Humans will at last set sight on these wondrous miracles of Nature !

Enjoy !

    HOLY CRAP! Wow.

    :40 to :50 just made my head asplode. What was that stuff?

    Interesting, I can use this video to explain about outer space to my little nieces and nephews.

    Viewing some of the sequences, its hard to believe some special effects were not stealthily stitched in! Haunting.

    Fantastic if a little frantic, the time frame could have been slowed to half and it would be more contemplative. I especially love that chunk diving into – is it the F-ring? Long may Cassini live and long may I live to take in the breathtaking view from Titan Station.

      I think that film went as slow as it could… Since it was stitched together from a bunch of still pictures, slowing it down might have made it seem choppy.

    Dr Kremer, you put it so wonderfully that I can’t agree more!!

    I watch it again and again mesmerised by its beauty! You know what I like the most? You don’t need any ‘special effects’ sequences we see in every run-of-the-mill sci-fi flick to be amazed. The Universe itself is the true awe! I watched the moonlets dive in the rings, yes as you say, like dolphins, and my mouth just opened wide!

    You know what else I like? That these videos remind us that the Universe isn’t just an abstract, philosophical concept, and all the space and astronomy buffs aren’t ‘weirdos’ looking up at some points of light! The Universe is just as real and true, as the blade of grass you touch on the countryside! It’s the same stuff! It’s not overstating to say that all this just get me ‘drunk’ with awe and wonder…

    “And one day, when we triumph over the “Do Nothing” & “Can’t Do” nay saying crowd, a future generation NASA Space Shuttle will journey beyond Earth and Humans will at last set sight on these wondrous miracles of Nature !”

    Amen!

      “… these videos remind us that the Universe isn’t just an abstract, philosophical concept…”

      I completely agree. We usually just get to see still images of astronomical bodies, which reinforces a sort of ‘static’ way of thinking about them. Putting them in motion really makes them much more tangible.

    this is incredible, it looked just like a silent film from the ’20s.. kind of surreal but astonishing nonetheless.

    It’s very similar to the Chris Abbas video he done last year. http://vimeo.com/24410924
