“Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.” - Carl Sagan
About two years ago I read 2312, a murder mystery set in various places throughout our solar system. The most fascinating part was imagining how we'll slowly expand throughout the solar system. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory released fun tourist posters of many of those locations (seen below), and artist Erik Wernquist created the following video, using the words of scientist and dreamer Carl Sagan. It is one of my favorites, and I thought I would share it with you all.
From the website: "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."
