How can low resolution, black & white footage, taken out in deep space carry so much wonder and beauty?

Cassini spacecraft executed its “Grand Finale” (a series of close Saturn and Saturn’s inner rings passes) at the end of its mission, before intentionally diving into its own destruction on Saturn’s atmosphere.

This was some of the footage taken by the spacecraft while performing those last maneuvers.

Ludovico Einaudi’s music (video below) connects perfectly with the shots to setup an extremely powerful and intense viewing.
