An absolutely beautiful book! The images of the ringed world are breathtaking. The book tells the story of the Cassini spacecraft and its smaller companion lander Huygens. The information and images relayed back to Earth will forever change how we look and think about the sixth planet, Saturn. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810930900, Hardcover)

After a journey of seven years and 2.2 billion miles, the spacecraft Cassini, with a probe named Huygens aboard, reached Saturn in July 2004, beginning a four-year tour to observe the remote planet, its rings, and its moons in depth. As a result of the spectacularly succesful Cassini-Huygens mission, photographs of astounding beauty have come streaming back to Earth, together with enough data to keep hundreds of scientists engrossed for decades. Reproduced here, in unprecedented detail and exquisite, high-quality format, are 150 of the best of those images, among them rings from the unlit side never visible from Earth and panoramas of the surface of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon.

This breathtaking volume, including authoritative essays on the planetary system and the mission, reveals the planet, its ethereally beautiful rings, and its 40+ moons in ways never before seen or recorded.

“Astonishing, amazing, and personal.”
— Dr. David Livingston

Host, The Space Show
