Cassini Views of Saturn's Rings 

Saturn image from Cassini probeA few years back, the Cassini probe shot out of Earth's gravity well with a small load of plutonium as a power source on its mission to explore Saturn. Thankfully it didn't explode during the launch. Now Cassini is providing spectacular views of Saturn, its rings and moons. NPR provides a few incredible images, along with haunting sounds from entering Saturn's magnetic field.
