Actual movie of flying through Saturn’s rings

To borrow the vernacular from Breaking Bad:  Yeah science, bitch!

This guy took all of NASA’s Cassini photos of Saturn, and then edited them together into a movie (without CGI or effects), letting us really “fly” through actual space.

This is the teaser trailer.  Can’t wait for the full movie.  An IMAX versions is coming, apparently.

    Well the shots of Earth and the Moon are not real, they are not that close to each other.

      I could be wrong. I’ll model it up today and see if I can replicate the effect with a long zoom.

      Well the sizes do indeed match up with what you would expect if the spacecraft was 1/3rd extra distance away from the Earth. I don’t understand how we can see stars in that shot (2.00) though. The moon would be so bright in comparison. Can’t wait for them to finish the film though. So beautiful.
