One of the most memorable "movie sequences" I have ever seen filmed by a deep-space probe was a sequence by the Galileo spacecraft showing the Earth spinning in space. What is the easiest way to get a copy of this movie sequence on video or preferably DVD? (I don't have broadband, so please don't suggest Internet video download!)

Second question: has any other spacecraft (for instance Cassini) taken a similar movie sequence while doing an Earth fly-by? If so, is the footage available?

What is the source of the video ?
If on internet it can be downloaded and shown on TV using a TV-out Network Interface Card in Your PC ... a DVD-recorder does the rest ;-)

Philip,
I wouldn't recognise a "TV out Network Interface Card" even if I saw one, and I wouldn't know what to do with it.
My computer is 7 years old (and doesn't need replacing, having never broken down!)
It's Windows 95/Pentium 2.
I use dial-up at 33,000 bps.

That's why I'm looking for a real video or a real DVD!

Well it's just a computer card ( PCI interface )that You plug into the motherboard of Your computer ( just as there's probably a separate computer graphics-card to connect Your screen to and a separate computer audio card to connect Your speakers and microphone to ...
No such cards in Your computer, well sound & video might be "onboard" ( = integrated on Motherboard )
