Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey is an animated film that makes use of data from NASA's Cassini mission. The movie tells the story of Dave, a solar surfing photo who battles his way through the solar system to save the Cassini probe from evil aliens. Twelve years in the making, Quantum Quest has cycled through at least a couple of voice casts. At last year's Comic Con Quantum Quest panel, producer Harry "Doc" Kloor, a scientist and veteran science fiction writer, announced that he had lined up Digimax Inc., a Taiwanese animation studio, as his partner to finish the film. At this year's panel, featuring Bob Picardo, Doug Jones andJanina Gavankar, Kloor announced that the movie will see wide release in February 2010 and will include actual Cassini images, including Enceladus and Titan.
