Saturn Calling

from TRUE by Jeff Oster



Independent Music Award Winner
Best New Age Song
Saturn Calling is inspired by mankind’s need to know the unknown.

On October 15, 1997, NASA launched the Cassini spacecraft on a mission to explore Saturn. Three nations and more than 260 scientists from 17 countries are involved in this mission.

The Cassini spacecraft is the first to explore the Saturn system of rings and moons from orbit. It traveled 2.2 billion miles to reach Saturn, and entered into orbit on June 30, 2004.

Saturn is a source of intense radio emissions. The radio waves are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet. These auroras are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights. The Cassini spacecraft began detecting these radio emissions in April 2002, when Cassini was (234 million miles) from the planet.

The sound of “wind” that you hear in this song is not wind at all, nor is it made by any synthesizer. What you hear is the sound of the auroras of Saturn, captured by Cassini on its amazing mission to explore this beautiful planet.
