Dear /sci/... this is the most fucking amazing short mov I've seen in a while:
>Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.
>Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea with the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.
>WORDS AND VOICE - Carl Sagan
You will jizz your pants.
OP here... I'm trying to identify planets/moons used in this vid.
First scene is Earth, second is Jupiter... is third Europa? Pic related.
Fourth is Saturn.
Sixth is Mars ? (space elevator one)
Most of the rest is also Mars?
I wonder where that giant cliff is located. Also, when they fly with wings and you can see Neptune in the background was cool.
Also, this video shows why Sagan is so much better than that Tyrone character. Sagan could inspire you.
-sigh- I'm born too early for this shit...
Neptune moon: Triton (big icy canyon near the end)
Saturn's moon: Titan (orange moon with the sea)
Jupiter's moon: Europa (Super slick and shiney icy moon)
Mar's moon: forget the name, but it looked like a giant meteor with cities all over it)
I think that's Enceladus.
Look at that geysers pic. It kinda looks the same.
Yeah, I think you're right.
Well done guys!!! What about this scene? It's too big to be an asteroid (asteroid is in the next scene) so it has to be a moon or a planet. I'm guessing it's a moon.
Isn't Solar System amazing? All this wonder and it's so damn close yet so far.
TFW you realize that you were born way too soon to experience any of this wonder first hand.
>Scratch that, had to rewatch scene, it's a Saturn moon
Yep! I searched for moon with a ridge and came up with this:
<-- This has to be Europa, right? Jupiter in the background and ice on the moon?
what about this sequence? yellow/greenish planet? is it Venus? hmm I have no idea. I think Venus would be too hot to fly through it and this terrain doesn't look like Venus pics I saw.
No idea where it is suppose to be.
Fucking amazing. I hope we as a species collect the required will to colonize the solar system.
A NASA study said that materials in the solar system are enough to support a population of 10 quadrillion people. Can you imagine that number of people? Can you imagine that number of people all with access to high quality education, nutrition and upbringing? Just through sheer statistics there would be thousands of Einsteins, Von Neumanns, Von Brauns whatever existing at a time. The pure potential of human industrious power with trillions of brains working across the solar system. Not to mention the art, philosophy, culture and media that would be created. It would be magnificent.
Nailed it! After some reading about Miranda, I found this:
>Verona Rupes is a cliff on Miranda, a moon of Uranus. The cliff face has been estimated to be from 5 kilometers (3 mi) to 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) high, which makes it the tallest known cliff in the solar system.
Source for 10 quadrillion stat. 4chan won't allow me to post the url due to thinking it's spam
>tfw you were born just in time to to sign up for cryonics and wake up in the future
If you like that one, you should appreciate this one
It uses some of the same excerpts
Probably some futuristic clothing that can fend off enough radiation it won't kill you or cause permanent damage. Or transhumanism has altered the human body to withstand radiation. Or medical science has developed so good treatments that high levels of radiation is simply nothing but a minor nuisance. Or the combination of these all.
I admit the gas mask at the end makes me chuckle a bit.
Next time someone tries to shit on /sci/ and how dumb we are, just point them to this fucking thread. We've analyzed all of the scenes and guessed them correctly without being told the answers. Those other pseudointellectual forums that are full of shitheads (cough rebbit cought) couldn't do this.
I double checked and while the main mission time is during the periods I mentioned we should get photos better than Hubble provided(which were just fuzzy blurs) in February for Ceres and in May for Pluto
