Oh dear, I’m afraid there’s something in my eye.


#3

I like to imagine that my g’g’g’granddaughter might be like that woman in the clouds of Saturn and I’d like to write her a note.


#4

First the new star wars teaser NOW THIS ?!?

Goin totes Spasoid Nerdburger this week!

IMO he’s using some crazy-strong telephotos there, and has really played with contrast to pop the colors. Planets/rings filling that big of the FoV? Bands that distinct? It’s pretty, for sure… but a lot of space is a bit more drab.


#6

Couldn’t you find a parade somewhere?


#7

In the future we will live on the many different worlds in our solar system. Unfortunately, really good steady cam technology will always remain beyond our reach.


#8

Bring it.


#9

With you there. I gotta take phonecalls now with my voice cracking.


#10

I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve watched it or shown a colleague. Still gets me every time.

Where is planet Ying Yang? (at 1:53 in this clip)


#12

That’s Iapetus, one of the moons of Saturn. From the Wanderers imgur gallery:

I recommend turning to the wikipedia site for more reading on Iapetus, for example about its unique “yin/yang” coloring, being almost entirely white on one side, and dark brown on the other…

Hence, why wouldn’t humans graffiti a giant yin yang symbol on the planet?! :slight_smile:
