Barber's Adagio for Strings, Saturn, Huygens

5.6k Saturn Cassini Photographic Animation from stephen v2 on Vimeo.

This lovely animation composed from actual images shot by Cassini during its nearly seven year tour of the Saturn system is part of an unfinished IMAX film, "Outside In."

Watch out for Enceladus in the final frame.

While undeniably majestic and solemn, I thought that the choice of Barber's well known Adagio for Strings to accompany the animation was a little odd until I had this thought. In the Xanadu region of Titan, Huygens the parachutist rests.
