NASA released its first incredible video of our closest look at Saturn yet

  • Added:  2 months ago
  • On April 26, the Cassini spacecraft flew closer to Saturn than ever before — between the gap that separates the planet from its rings.

    Since then, Cassini has been transmitting dozens of images of Saturn's surface. Here, NASA has compiled all the images into one, incredible video that reveals exactly what Cassini saw.

    One of the sights that surprised scientists most was the sharp edges of Saturn's hexagon and its central vortex. Saturn's hexagon is a giant cloud system on Saturn's north pole, and it contains a central vortex.

    The sharp edges scientists saw in these latest images suggests that the cloud system and its vortex are not mixing with their surroundings. But what's preventing the clouds in the hexagon from mixing with the clouds right next to it is a mystery.

    This first dive marked the beginning of the end for Cassini. For the last 13 years, Cassini has explored Saturn and its moons. But its time will come to an end this September, when it will enter Saturn's atmosphere and burn up.

    Chasing shadow in the name of progress!

    NASA can create cassini but not the brains that created cassini!

    Then how did those brains that visualise and actualise cassini came about?

    Coincidental evolution? lol!

    Somebody just has to tell me one fucking purpose of NASA to humanity except sats. Cmon guys its uselezs studying the other planets. And its ecen more waste of time trying to find a planet to live. How fucking stupid and foolish can scientists politicia s and govts get? They fucking cant take care of the Earth and they wanna destroy it and then travel to another planet and live. Load of crap! Who the fuck proved most of what NASA says? Its guess work. In literal sense its only fiction. And people are fooled. More bizzare is funding billions into these iseless projects.

    I love this comment section... Because of the retarded flat earthers. I love how they keep spouting shit and when they're confronted with a question they respond with: The Earth is flat, you've all been lied to!

    Heres a question to you flatties: Why the fuck would the government lie to everyone?

    Also you claim that everyone around the globe knows that the Earth is flat yet I have yet to actually meet a single person in real life that claims the Earth is flat. Do you know why that is? Its because the average person is smart enough to figure out that the Earth is round all by themselves...

    Another question: Why do time zones exist? Why is it night on one side of the Earth while its day on the other side if the Earth is flat? Wouldn't the sun equally illuminate the whole Earth?

    I am fully expecting a "time zones are fake" reply.

    I would tell you to go watch some videos from the International Space Station but knowing your stupidity you would claim its CGI...

    If the world was flat and small and space was fake I would feel very insignificant that I have nothing in my power to fight back against the all-powerful government that rules the entire world and every decision we make. The world doesn't have to be flat for me to be special. As Bob Ross would say, I'm a happy accident. I have power that I can put towards anything I set my mind to. I think that space is the coolest thing, and wondering about it is part of being human. Wouldn't it be boring if the world was all that was?

    I have a telescope and I know that the planets are there. And nebula, satellites, other galaxies like Andromeda which you can see with the naked eye. You can see the ISS passing in remote islands which I have experienced firsthand. I've flown on a plane from Alaska to Russia.

    You are special no matter what.

    only having read the comments that there waren't any 4k cameras back then....4k is the resolution of your tv. Camera's that can shot at that resolution are way older then '97. But these camera's are heavy.. They can gather more data with radio/x-ray and all that stuff. So an optical camera is more for fun that for actual scientific collection of information. I think thats the reason..

    NASA needs more funding!!! I mean they can only do some much and plan so many things with what little budget they have. Why are we putting so much money into our military and weapons like wth why are we buying and funding killing wth why aren't we putting more money into the health of earth and it's future!!! The military is aboit 600 billion dollars come on now compared to NASAs 18.5 billion

    I have been taking photo doc of MANY things in the sky for YEARS NOW...Unbelievable things....and I have a collection of photos that show THIS SAME HEXAGONAL shape around our Sun (or what is supposed to be our Sun)...They are from a very distinct time frame, and the Hexagonal outline is undeniable, unquestionable, and in EVERY photo ONE after the other. This is ONE, of MANY countless anomalies I have captured. I am so very grateful for the eyes to see, and ears to hear....There is SO VASTLY MUCH, that we the public, are UTTERLY uninformed of (or should I say, kept in the dark)....To add, I have not used ANY type of high tech camera, devices, OR editing of any sort, EVER. To say the very least, fascinatingly profound...

    LOVELIGHT, ALL.

    • photoboyjet
      photoboyjet 2 months ago

      The first production model Red Cinema Camera didn't go on the market until August 2007 (the company was founded in 2005 ). The Cassini–Huygens space probe was launched in 1997 and arrived at Saturn in 2004. Saturn is a gas giant. There is no "surface" to see. Only clouds and bands of gas.

    isnt awesome to see a cg video of a sattelite diving and floating around saturn with real time black&white pictures of its surface which resembles the surface of a desert an awful lot? its almost believable. I just love to see nasa putting out videos like this but not be able to put themselves back on the moon. btw, a hint for the next video containing images of saturn, why not colour the black & white images exactly like the colours of saturn in the cgi of saturn used in this vid? that would make it even more believable

And all that greed of people wanting more and more... will finally cause a planetary hick-up and kill us all. When will enough be enough?
