Saturn from Dione
by Kim Poor
Perhaps the most famous of Kim' s prints, this was his first serious foray into space art, and our first print to sell out. Working closely with the Voyager spacecraft imaging team, this work took months to complete. It shows a crater on the polar region of Dione, Saturn's fourth major moon. The white streaks are fissures filled with fresh ice from beneath, and were caused by a cometary impact on the reverse side of the moon. Dione is composed of water ice, and the surface gravity is so low, you could throw a rock into orbit.
