Someone said :
The Earth as seen from the ringed planet Saturn, one billion kilometres (618 million miles) away, imaged by the Cassini Saturn orbiter spacecraft.

Amazing, that one guy created all that in 6 days and never seen again?

Explanation: On August 3rd, the Rosetta spacecraft's narrow angle camera captured this stunning image of the nucleus of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. After 10 years and 6.5 billion kilometers of travel along gravity assist trajectories looping through interplanetary space, Rosetta had approached to within 285 kilometers of its target. The curious double-lobed shape of the nucleus is revealed in amazing detail at an image resolution of 5.3 meters per pixel. About 4 kilometers across, the comet nucleus is presently just over 400 million kilometers from Earth, between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars. Now the first spacecraft to achieve a delicate orbit around a comet, Rosetta will swing to within 50 kilometers and closer in the coming weeks, identifiying candidate sites for landing its probe Philae later this year.

I was listening to the live feed as they made the final aproach into orbit, this is amazing stuff!! We're orbiting a fucking comet! A comet!!!!
