The Cassini mission is the most comprehensive imaging project of a body in the outer solar system ever undertaken. Upon release of these recent photos, more of which can be seen here, Cassini scientist Carolyn Porco said, "Finally, here are the views that we've waited years for. Sailing high above Saturn and seeing the rings spread out beneath us like a giant, copper medallion is like exploring an alien world we've never seen before. It just doesn't look like the same place. It's so utterly breath-taking it almost gives you vertigo."
