Wanderers – a short film on space exploration by Erik Wernquist

Honestly, this is one of the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Erik Wernquist is a digital artist and animator from Stockholm, Sweden.

In Erik’s own words:

the film is a vision of our humanity’s future expansion into the Solar System.

The visuals in the film are all based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. All 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. For those interested in learning more of the places featured in the film, be sure to check out this cool gallery on Erik’s website.

The film is an AMAZING piece of work.
