    Thanks for posting Grendal, that video was awesome. I'm going to try and play it on my HDTV bigscreen next.

    It appears to be modern CGI, but with Carl Sagans narration, that is interesting. I wonder if it is just upgraded visuals with reused narration, or if that was one of Mr. Sagans last narrations. If so, it looks amazing and fresh for the time period.

    For some reason the Vimeo video doesn't show up in Safari; here it is on YouTube:

    It would be nicer still if Vimeo didn't think that buffering was a bad word. If I pause the playback, I don't build up a buffer - it only restarts the stream when I un-pause.

    For a list and detailed descriptions of all the places in our solar system depicted in that video, see WANDERERS Gallery - The Open Road

    Before reading that list I tried to guess the locations. I got about half of them right. Not a very impressive effort on my part. The hollow body really confused me until I read the explanation!

    It really is an incredible and spectacular video. I sent an email to the guy who created it thanking him for his creativity and hard work.
