The Cassini spacecraft mission to Saturn and it's moons is probably my favourite space mission of all time. The spacecraft has been orbiting that incredible planetary system since 2004 and returning some spectacular images, along with a wealth of scientific data. Cassini's raw images have been available at saturn.jpl.nasa.gov... since that time.

What would this mission look like from the images it returned, compressed into a Youtube video? Here's the result:

341,805 images taken by Cassini's Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) from the Saturn EDR Data Sets (Volumes 1-93). This includes all of Cassini's Photos from February 6, 2004 - September 15, 2015. Compiled and processed by The Wall Street Journal’s @JonKeegan.

NOTE: These raw, unedited sequences at times include rapid flashing. If you have photosensitive epilepsy, or a similar condition, this could trigger a physical reaction. Please use caution when watching this footage.

Man I feel like I'm about to have a seizure watching that video for 5 min, much less 3 hours.

Cool pics and all but wow seizure warning to everybody

Think of it as an old flickering movie from Charlie Chaplin era.

For a shorter and more comfortable view, here's my own video that combined some raw images taken through red, green, and blue filters into (more or less) true-colour vistas: www.youtube.com...



And of course it's best left to dedicated and fully-devoted amateurs to produce a Hollywood-like cinematic experience from these images, so keep an eye out on In Saturn's Rings coming to an IMAX cinema near you.
