Take the ultimate flight around Saturn

Until someone actually puts a high-definition Imax camera on an interplanetary probe, Stephen van Vuuren's fly-through of the Saturnian system may stand as one of the most ambitious non-profit efforts to create a virtual spaceflight using real images. This test clip is for a big-screen movie project titled "Outside In." The video draws upon still photographs from the Cassini mission to Saturn. Watch it in full-screen mode if you can, with the sound turned on so you can sample Samuel Barber's heartbreakingly beautiful Adagio for Strings, op. 11.
