The Wanderers

A rather impressive short film, with the always impressive words of Carl Sagan. I won’t live to see these scenes in reality, but hopefully some of our species will.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    Stunning indeed. When I watched the Apollo moon landings on TV as a child, I had no idea there would then be a period of over 40 years during which no human went beyond low-earth orbit. Maybe the Chinese or India will be the next to go beyond LEO. Maybe a Chinese or Indian space spectacular is what it will take to get the US, EU, and Russians to care about space again? India has made an impressive start by sending a probe to Mars orbit for less than Hollywood spent making Gravity!

    Now we can add Pluto and Charon to the bodies for which we have good images. I’ve been wondering what Pluto is like since childhood!
