GENEROUS CONTRIBUTORS

Invaluable Team Players

"In creating a film that uses 7,500,000 photographs, every photograph is not equal. To create the stunning animated footage of flying through space, the most important ingredient is lots of very high-resolution images processed from space image sources.

Until early 2007, I was really stuck on how to get enough high-resolution images to create footage even at HiDef resolutions, much less resolutions for the giant screen. Then I found the Unmanned Spaceflight Forum.
 
Unmanned Spaceflight was the first big step that made a film possible that could play in IMAX® and Giant Screen theaters. Here, I found dedicated and talented amateurs that process space images. It opened the door to processing space images but more importantly, to have these passionate volunteers who donated their hard work and beautiful photographs to the film.
 
While NASA, JPL, CiClops, ESA, Space Telescope Institute and other agencies work to generate high- resolution images, huge amounts of data is never processed into usable images. Without the efforts of Unmanned Spaceflight – now sponsored by The Planetary Society – and the many other image processors around the world that have contributed to the film, there would be no In Saturn’s Rings."
