mathematician turns juno images into stunning jupiter flyby video


since nasa's juno probe entered jupiter's orbit a year ago, it's been sending back high-resolution images of the solar system's biggest planet. when nasa released the latest batch of images, last month, german mathematician gerald eichstaedt got to work, turning them into into a video. using software that he wrote, eichstaedt used juno's trajectory data to determine the probe's exact position when it captured an image, and then placed that image on a spherical model of the planet. the resulting video combines 36 images from the probe to simulate a jovian flyby. london-based filmmaker seán doran saw the video when eichstaedt uploaded it to unmannedspaceflight.com and spent another 12 hours smoothing the thousands of frames, before adding a soundtrack. it's almost like being there. almost..
