Photomontage of the saturnian system realized thanks to the images collected by the Voyager 1 probe during the NASA's Voyager 1 Mission, the 17th November 1980. Vintage chromogenic print on Kodak paper.
In 1972, NASA, after the success of the Apollo missions that enabled Man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969, began the «Voyager» program. The goal is to approach and explore the outer planets of the solar system: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. The Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 probes will be sent in 1976. The Voyager program met a great public popularity by revealing the first extraordinary color images of the most important planets in our solar system. These historical photographs now belong to the History of Photography, of which they have written some of the most extraordinary pages.
NASA presented this photomontage based on the first images collected by the Voyager 1 probe in 1980. It shows the planet Saturn surrounded by its main moons: Dione in the foreground, Thetys and Mimas in the lower right, Enceladus and Rhea in the upper left of the photograph and finally Titan in the upper right. Saturn is after Jupiter the second most important planet in our solar system. It is a gigantic ball of gas mainly composed of hydrogen and helium with maybe a hard core at the center of rocks. Each of its moons has unique and particular characteristics. Enceladus, the most singular, is considered by scientists to be the only body other than Earth in our solar system which can present some signs of life.
This rare photograph belongs to the very closed circle of the best known and most appreciated photographs of space. It has on its back a scientific legend on a sheet. Its state of conservation is «premium».
