Saturn, the giant gas planet with multiple rings and moons. These pieces of matter follow the laws of nature; and so does the human mind. Similarity: both have their striking beauty. Difference: the human mind is much more complex and in need for peace.

Picture taken by Hubble telescope.

Pictures from the Cassini spacecraft. Together with the Huygens probe it went to Saturn as a combined spacecraft from which the Huygens separated on December 25, 2004. On January 14, 2005, Huygens landed on Saturn’s moon Titan, seen in the middle picture, and revealed its surface, invisible otherwise, because of Titan’s thick atmosphere. More breath-taking pictures.
