Divisione di Cassini


The audio track is inspired by the largest and most visible separation present in the ring system of the planet Saturn called "Cassini Division", discovered by Gian Domenico Cassini in 1675. Cassini's division is due to the gravitational influence of the Mimas satellite, which it is in orbital resonance with the division, so the material is ejected due to the passage of the satellite.

One might think that these areas are empty and clean, but unlike the rings which are predominantly composed of ice water, the division, which should be empty, contains more dust than ice, reversing the perceptual plane. Rings A and B - the two brightest rings on the planet - are cleaner as opposed to the division between them, which is dirty with dust (probably residues of a moon).

The visual part reaches Saturn and its rings through images of space, interrupted by visual disturbances, fouling of the signal that reveal the probe that bears the name of the discoverer of the division. The video ends with the incredible images of the rings photographed by the Cassini probe, reworked through the analog signal.
