“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” – Carl Sagan
This is the quote designer and director Chris Abbas recalls when discussing CASSINI MISSION, the film he created using stills from the NASA image archives. Abbas’s love for space is evident in his treatment of the footage (isn’t the soundtrack perfect?), but his statement on the matter solidifies his affection for the cosmos:
I truly enjoy outer space. It’s absolutely amazing that we now have the ability to send instruments out into the void of the universe to observe all sorts of interesting things. Asteroids! Moons! Planets! Dark matter!
