Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known…

Beautiful short film of footage from the Cassini spacecraft set to a haunting Nine Inch Nails from the Ghosts I – IV release.

I love the way that the video feels like a teaser for some epic space film (and wish that it was).   

From the NASA page about Cassini: “We’re looking at a string of remarkable discoveries — about Saturn’s magnificent rings, its amazing moons, its dynamic magnetosphere and about Titan’s surface and atmosphere,” says Dr. Linda Spilker, Cassini project scientist. “Some of the mission highlights so far include discovering that Titan has Earth-like processes and that the small moon Enceladus has a hot-spot at its southern pole, jets on the surface that spew out ice crystals and evidence of liquid water beneath its surface.”
