Awesome Saturn Flyby Video

Ever want to fly around Saturn, its rings and moons? This is about as close as we are going to get for a while. A website called Outside In is working on an IMAX movie fly through using Cassini images.  No CGI here, this is the real thing.

On a side note, I want people to remember that this is one of those great things about having NASA data freely available to the public. People can use the images to create new works of art without lots of red tape and restrictions.

This project relies on donor support so consider kicking in a few bucks if you are so inspired.
