This Epic Short Film Reveals What Life Will Look Like Once We've Conquered the Solar System

If you really want to leave the earth and go to some other planet in our solar system. Then, don’t worry about this now, as scientists are working very hard on it and may be they are in more hurry than you. The dream of leaving Earth behind and go on a lunar or Martian base is far from realization just yet, but in the meantime, this classic short film by digital artist Erik Wernquist gives you an indication of what it’s really going to look like if when humans conquer the Solar System.

The duration of the film is less than 4 minutes and Wanderers takes us on a mind-bending journey through the Solar System, as humans from the future base-jump off the tallest known cliff in the Solar System - Verona Rupes on Uranus’ moon Miranda - and float through the clouds of Saturn.

Wernquist said: "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."

We're still guessing out what our nearby planets even look like, it's about as exact a demonstration as we're going to get right now of what it would be like to travel through the compact atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan.

The sources of the images for the film are NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio and the European Space Agency.
