Caption

Voyager 1 timelapse film of the rings of Saturn, showing dark spokes within the B Ring. Voyager 1 was launched on 5th September 1977, and arrived at Saturn in early November 1980. It sent the first high resolution images of the planet, after Pioneer 11's low resolution pass the previous year. The spokes are thought to be dust clouds held above the rings by electrostatic repulsion. Voyager 1 also visited Saturn's largest moon Titan. Voyager 1 is still in operation, and is the most distant artificial object from Earth as of 2021.
