Cassini mission

Imagery from Saturn becomes a breathtaking glimpse of a neighbouring world

NASA’s Cassini Mission was launched in 1997 and has been exploring Saturn and its moons since 2004. It has provided humanity not only with priceless scientific information, but awe-inspiring images of the massive ringed planet. In Cassini Mission, created by artfully sequencing footage from NASA’s archive, the director Chris Abbas transforms the once unimaginably distant Saturn, named millennia ago for the Roman god of time, into something both mysterious and strangely palpable.
