A Traveler’s Guide to the Planets on National Geographic Channel

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is a great series airing over the next few nights on the National Geographic Channel…the above is a segment recapping Cassini’s approach to Saturn in 2004. Revisit the excitement of the mission team as they successfully establish orbit and see some of the amazing first images sent back by Cassini. The shows are well-made and feature wonderful high-def images of the planets and fascinating CGI animations based on the latest scientific data.

Tonight’s episodes will feature Mars, and then Venus and Mercury. I’m looking forward to it!
