Dear /sci/... this is the most fucking amazing short mov I've seen in a while:

http://vimeo.com/108650530

>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.
>>
>>6911888
What are those? Cryovolcanoes? I think that's Neptune's moon, Triton.
>>
>>6911876
>>6911888
-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)
>>
>>6911888
I believe it's Enceladus, one of Saturn's moon has the same color and large number of impact craters
>>
>>6911916
Not impact craters, the canyons (those lines)
>>
>>6911876
very cool man thanks for the post

the butterfly wings seemed a bit silly tho
>>
>>6911916
>>6911914
So which on is it?
>>
>>6911914
I think that's Enceladus.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enceladus

Look at that geysers pic. It kinda looks the same.
>>
>>6911922

>>
>>6911922
No evidence of cyrovolcanism on Triton.
so:
>>6911923
>>6911916
>>
>>6911923
Yeah, I think you're right.
>>
>>6911925
I'm preeeetty sure there's cryovolcanism on Triton.
I stole this link from wikipedia but whatever

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.
>>
>>6911930
Ah, Nice find
>>
>>6911931
I Think it's one of Mar's moons >>6911915
Phobos perhaps, one of the only moons shaped like a meteor

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.
>>
>>6911936
Scratch that, had to rewatch scene, it's a Saturn moon
>>
>>6911939
you probably haven't even seen all the cool shit here on Earth
>>
>>6911931
Lapetus is the moon. The ridge is unique to the moon
>>
>>6911876
Did you see Interstellar yet, OP?
I seriously cried watching those amazing visuals.
>>
>>6911942
>Scratch that, had to rewatch scene, it's a Saturn moon

Yep! I searched for moon with a ridge and came up with this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iapetus_(moon)

solved?
>>
What could this be?
>>
>>6911952
ur mom's vag (note the semen everywhere)
>>
<-- This has to be Europa, right? Jupiter in the background and ice on the moon?
>>
>>6911960
Yes
>>
>>6911961
thx!

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.
>>
>>6911952
Its probably a O'Neill cylinder.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O%27Neill_cylinder
>>
>>6911965
Titan is the only one with a known sea of hydrocarbon, and Titan is yellow/orange.
>>
>>6911965
Those look like the "glaciers" of titan
>>
>>6911969
>>6911973
>Titan

Definitely Titan!

What about these giant cliffs from which they're jumping off? Not sure if that's Neptune or Uranus in the background... that would narrow down the moon.
>>
>>6911968
yeah, it reminded me of Rama.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rama_(spacecraft)

I think this is an asteroid mining hole though. Not sure about that one.
>>
>>6911983
It's Uranus (light blue, Neptune is dark blue), and I want to go with the moon, Miranda, because of the sharp cliffs, Miranda has 5km high fault lines in some areas.
>>
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.
>>
>>6912025
>moon, Miranda
Nailed it! After some reading about Miranda, I found this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verona_Rupes

>Verona Rupes is a cliff on Miranda, a moon of Uranus.[3] The cliff face has been estimated to be from 5 kilometers (3 mi)[2] to 10 kilometers (6.2 mi)[4] high, which makes it the tallest known cliff in the solar system.[5]

>Saturn's moon: Titan
>Jupiter's moon: Europa
>Mars's moon: Phobos
Earth's moon: ... uh ... Moon

that's fucking amazing! when, if ever, are we going to be able to do what people in this vid are envisioning?

500 yrs?

Also, that would put us in Type II civilization on Kardashev Scale.

If you're speaking Latin or Spanish or something, sure, but in English its name is The Moon.

If you like that one, you should appreciate this one

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oY59wZdCDo0

It uses some of the same excerpts

>>yfw this guy actually did his research

>>6912087
It's from pale blue dot
>>
>>6913737
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.
>>
>>6911939
It's astounding to know that in 2015 we will see for the first time Ceres and Pluto.
>>
>>6911876
You have description of every scene in the gallery
A lot of things are taken from 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson
http://www.erikwernquist.com/wanderers/gallery.html

>>6911952
It's (according to the creator) the inside of a hollowed out asteroid.

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.
>>
>>6915980
that's the Dawn mission, right?
>>
>>6916014
Dawn-Ceres in April 2015
New Horizons-Pluto in July 2015

First time we will see details of surface of both objects.
>>
>>6916034
Very exciting.
>>
>>6916039
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
>>
>>6916003
There are 8 more of those.
