Presentation SATURN LORD OF THE RINGS

Swansea, Wales, United Kingdom

Galileo thought it was a multiple planet, Wren, Huygens and Hevelius were fascinated by it. It was found that this giant world was less dense than water, and by the 1980s this world had the most moons known of any planet – only to lose out to Jupiter much later! It is of course Saturn. In July 2004 the Cassini/Huygens probe reached Saturn to begin several years of study of the Lord of the Rings. Andrew entertains us with the story of the observation of Saturn with a review and update on the Cassini Mission. See the latest images and hear the sound of dust hitting the spacecraft. With Moons and rings to delight the eye and stimulate the imagination, with music to inspire and enchant this is one presentation not to be missed.
