One of the most prolific and attention-capturing space missions to date is the Cassini mission to Saturn and its moons, which arrived there in 2004 and since then produced not only a wealth of valuable scientific data about that planet and its system, but also many rather spectacular images.

Filmmaker Stephen van Vuuren, along with a team of volunteers, took it upon himself to realise those images into a cinematic spectacle worthy of awe. His project, to be screened at IMAX cinemas, is called In Saturn's Rings.

He and his team used raw Cassini images (as well as many other images of space) to create a colourful, moving, cinematic experience that would put the viewer in the seat of a spacecraft cruising around Saturn and its moons.

Stephen made a good use of Adobe software in his project, and here's Adobe's informative article about his project: inspire.adobe.com...

Personally, I can't wait to see the final result! I have been following the Cassini mission for quite a while, and love working with the images that come back from that spacecraft.

There is so much beauty beyond our little blue marble.
Makes the mind salivate over what future missions may bring.

Here's my little contribution: www.youtube.com...



I used raw Cassini images taken through red, green, and blue filters (which, when combined, give a true-colour image, although the raw images are uncalibrated).

That's just raw beauty, thanks for sharing, wildespace.

Cool stuff

Another hugely inspirational and awe-inspiring short film is Wanderers which also uses many real location in the Solar System to give a taste of what our manned exploration of space will hopefully bring.



Among the spectacular shots are:

1. Hiking across the ice fields of Jupiter's moon Europa.

2. Flying in Saturn's moon's Titan's thick atmosphere.

3. Base-jumping from the enormous cliff on Neptune's moon Miranda.

4. Floating in Saturn's atmosphere itself.

That was literally breathtaking to see.

I cannot wait to see this!

Thank you for sharing it.

I love the music in the video you made. Who is it?

And, of course, there's the Ambition, another short film that reminds you that space exploration is worth every penny, as it unravels the world (and the universe) we live in, giving us a bigger home than what we're used to (and limit ourselves to).

Thanks. It's called "Space Coast" by Topher Mohr and Alex Elena: www.youtube.com...

Thanks, Wildespace!
Not to go off topic, but it kind of reminds me of this tune:

A nice spacy instrumental for contemplating the solar system.

Awesome, thanks. As I watched this a thought went through my mind that our moon is a leftover watering can and earth was the garden. A lot of our water came from the moon, I'll be darned.

Will there be narration? Or just imagery and music?

Part of me sort of actually hopes it's the latter. The thought of being in a darkened theater with other people watching these images set to music... is exhilarating.

Peace.

In an IMAX HD theater, it should be astounding.
Something to have dinner in the LUX as well.

Mind=blown. I'll be back after I'm done with it (read: probably never.)

Peace.

Awesome footage, as everybody who loves space and know that they probably never will see this in real life.
Well watching this I started up my favourite space game Elite dangerous with amazing over four hundred billion starsystems to chose from .

I entered some alien planet rings and I can tell you it feels as if you really there the detail is amazing. Now heading for Sol I sure go and visit the Saturn rings and look if they come close to this real video.

Godspeed. ..

that's a common belief among men who havent experienced anything beyond the typical day to day drudgery of life here on this planet, they really dont consider there is "major intelligence" off-planet
