Saturn Dancer Pin

In 2017, Astrophysicists at the University of Toronto used the natural patterns of Saturn's moons and rings to compose two pieces of music. They did so to celebrate the upcoming end of the Cassini probe, which after twenty years was decommissioned by being crashed into Saturn while gathering more data. To accomplish the feat, scientists used the data of orbital resonances from Saturn's moons and the trillions of particles floating in it's ring system, as gathered by Cassini. Orbital resonances reflect the gravitational influence exerted by celestial bodies when they move past each other. The repeating patterns can be transformed into musical harmonies. Dance to the music of Saturn with this enamel pin.

Pin measures 1.5".
