Hori­zon: Good­bye Cassini – Hello Saturn 9pm, BBC2

The Guardian - The Guide - - Tv Films - SH

It took seven years for Cassini to travel to Saturn and, over the last 13 years, the space­craft has been beam­ing back in­for­ma­tion to Earth. While there’s plenty of sci­ence to get ex­cited about in this doc, which marks the dra­matic end­ing of Cassini’s mis­sion, what’s re­ally spe­cial are the ex­tra­or­di­nary, po­etic pho­to­graphs taken from the probe. In one shot taken from be­neath Saturn’s rings you can see a tiny twin­kling planet in the dis­tance: Earth.
