Spectacular Saturn: Images from the Cassini-Huygens Mission
Saturn is the most distant planet we can see without a telescope. To observers on Earth, it seems to hover serenely, a jewel in the night sky. Up close, however, the view is anything but tranquil. Since 2004 the spacecraft Cassini has orbited Saturn, revealing a dynamic world of wind and lightning, rippling rings and a menagerie of moons, including Titan, with its dense atmosphere, weather systems, and a landscape eerily like Earth’s.
This exhibition presents images taken by Cassini and its Titan probe Huygens of this spectacular planet and its many moons.
Spectacular Saturn: Images from the Cassini-Huygens Mission was supported by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
This exhibition was on display in Gallery 211 from February 2, 2009 through May 15, 2009
