I was reading tonight about some of the highest mountains in the Solar System (eg. Mars, Iapetus, etc) and I was reminded of this beautiful little film posted about a year ago. (Specifically, I recalled a scene depicting low-gravity cliff diving at Verona-Rupes on Miranda.)

Watched it again tonight, and I recommend for anyone who hasn't seen it, to have a watch. (Also features John van Vliet's textures.)

Link to the movie: HERE

I remember, when I first watched the film, I re-created one of the scenes (the Europa scene) in Celestia for comparison (and saved a celURL.) I don't know if I ever shared that celURL, so here it is now, along with a bit of a crude composite comparing the scene from the film with the same scene in Celestia. :mrgreen:

CLICK HERE to see it in Celestia.

I hope that treatment for acute radiation poisoning is more advanced in the future, or those people strolling across the surface of Europa are not going to have a nice time...
