New, dramatic Saturn video created from Voyager and Cassini spacecraft images

New Saturn video created from Voyager and Cassini spacecraft images

By Eric Pfeiffer | The Sideshow – 3 hrs ago

Netherlands-based director Sander van den Berg has taken images from NASA's Cassini orbiter and Voyager spacecraft to create an amazing new video of Saturn entitled "Outer Space."
At first, the compilation of images looks like relatively simple computer-generated imagery of the gas giant. But the images become awe-inspiring when you realize they are all actual photos taken by NASA.
The collection of moving images is set to "That Home," performed by the British jazz and electronic band The Cinematic Orchestra.
45 seconds into the video you can see space debris crashing into Saturn's rings. About a minute into the video, the images take on an almost psychedelic turn, as van den Berg captures images of gas geysers on the solar system's second largest planet.
