This kind of awe inspiring sight is why I love science fiction in general and space sagas in particular.

Not sure the music really worked with the images but beautiful to watch. I'd have gone more Elgar...
Some of the images of Jupiter look like what Van Gogh painted. I wonder what he knew that we didn't?

I thought the music was perfect. It had a kinda spiritual overtone and reminded me of 2001 a Space Odyssey. I loved it.


Yow! 2001 was 20 years ago and the kind of thing the movie envisioned is at least a generation, more likely two in the future.

Never mind the monoliths; I spotted The Wild Hunt.
(In Parson's neck of the woods, that would be "Ghost Riders in the Sky.")

Incredible! It's mind-boggling if you have a telescope and can see the shape, and 4 small moons in a line around it, and then go to watching this to get an idea of the scale and distance.

Also, I'll never complain about bad weather again.
