Saturn in blue

April 29, 2014

From the producer, Earnest Hamby:

“This is our first attempt at playing with one of the raw images. We wanted to get our 13-year-old excited about space exploration."

“The image was created with iPhoto on our iPad and only took a few minutes. We’re true amateurs who appreciate everything the Cassini team is doing. Keep up the good work!”

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
