Carolyn Porco: This is Saturn

Planetary scientist Carolyn Porco shows images from the Cassini voyage to Saturn, focusing on its largest moon, Titan, and on frozen Enceladus, which seems to shoot jets of ice.

As the leader of the Imaging Team on the Cassini mission to Saturn, Carolyn Porco interprets and shares the pictures coming back from this fascinating planet, its rings and its moons.

This gives me goosebumps everytime. Still, to these days, my favorite TED talk ever.

The Cassini Mission to Saturn is a joint effort between NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Italian space agency (Agenzia Spaziale Italiana – ASI) and one of the most successful space mission since  Apollo’s Moon landing in 1969.

If you’re into astronomy or astrophysics it’s definitely worth to follow the brilliant and charming Dr. Porco on Twitter.
