Dear Mr. van Vuuren,
I have just seen the first footage of the Outside-In-Project on your website and it is probably the most beautiful thing I have seen in my entire life.

This is the first time in my life I ever literally experienced the word “breathtaking”. Who knew that referred to a literal, physical reaction?
“The film we have all been waiting for. Thank you.”
I am sure you have had a lot of response to the beautiful sample of your movie that was featured on Astronomy Picture of the Day today.
Prof Mark McCaughrean, European Space Agency Head, Research & Scientific Support Department
WOW. absolutely speechless.
I can honestly say that it is going to be really extraordinary experience to see this movie in IMAX and I look forward to it!

“My entire life i waited to see something like that. Thank you so much.”
Inspiring and just damn fun to watch. My 3 year old keeps asking to “see Saturn fly”
“Thanks for bringing us all along on this ride to a place we’d never get to go!”
My son, Dylan, is a budding filmmaker. He was impressed and inspired by the screening and wanted to donate the money he has been saving for a worthy cause.”
“..that’s real. That is a real picture of Saturn. That is a real picture of Saturn’s moons. Can you imagine what someone like Galileo would’ve given to be able to see something like this?!”
“Indeed, I’m in awe. To think that we can send a probe that far away, have it perform gravitational swings by all these moons, take measurements and images, assemble them into a thing of such beauty, and convey the scale of the Saturn system to be viewed here at home in comfort … well, it makes me glad to be alive to have seen such a thing!”
“One of the most amazing pieces I’ve ever witnessed.”
