NASA had launched the Cassini spacecraft to explore the facts behind Saturn planet. Recently the Cassini spacecraft send back several color and black and white images of earth from interplanetary distance, So explore the view of Earth from Saturn with NASA.
We always curious about to know how other planets within the solar system differ from our mother Earth. NASA agency always focused on to find out the mysteries behind the space. Now NASA make a chance to experience the view of Earth from Saturn through their Cassini space craft.
On 19th July the NASA scientists got many colored and black and white images of earth and moon from Cassini space craft. The color image provides perfect view of Earth from Saturn. In the space exploration image from NASA we can see that earth and moon as mere dots. It is a nice visual experience to all of us that planet Earth shining in blue color even it is found as a dot within the image.
As mentioned NASA’s Cassini spacecraft target to explore all facts about Saturn planet. The image itself shows off how big is that planet as compare to Earth. Within the image that delivers the view of Earth from Saturn highlight the massive rings of the planet. The stunning image of Earth taken by Cassini spacecraft from a distance of 1.5 billion kilometers.
“We can’t see individual continents or people in the portrait of Earth, but this pale blue dot is succinct summary of who we were on July 19th. Cassini pictures remind us how tiny our home planet is in the vastness of space, and also testifies to ingenuity of citizens of this tiny planet to send a robotic spacecraft so far away from home to study Saturn and take a look back photo of Earth” Cassini project scientist Linda Spilker said.
Normally it is impossible to take photos of Earth from outer solar system. It is because at such attempts will damage the camera detectors as Sun seems to be very closer to Earth in such positions. Cassini’s image view of Earth from Saturn became a reality by mass of Saturn planet blocked the light of Sun. The spacecraft also took the image at right time at right position.
