Portrait of Gas Giants

[original media no longer available]

Here raw footage from NASA’s Cassini and Voyager missions has been combined in a stunning portrait of Saturn and Jupiter. Watch as tiny moons create gravity waves in the rings of Saturn and observe the complicated relative motion between the cloud bands on Jupiter and the swirls and vortices that result. Fluid dynamics are truly everywhere. (Video credit: Sander van den Berg; submitted by Daniel B)
