Wanderers…

My friend Rincewind shared the link to the space.io9 post containing Erik Wernquist’s video with me last weekend, but, as you know, I was a little busy having my mind blown in a much less fun way by a ransomware attack. Fortunately, the folks over at Twisted Sifter did their own post on it to remind me. Personally, I’d watch almost anything that includes a voice-over by Carl Sagan, but his voice over stunning imagery like this is something special indeed

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 of 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.
