Stunning 3D Flyover of Mars

Finnish filmmaker, Jan Fröjdman, has taken stills of Mars taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter over 18 years and stitched them together into a video.

    That convinced me I don't want to go there.

  2. It looks a bit gloomy.

    This would go great with Laurie Anderson's /Big Science/ playing over it: "Hey pal! How do I get to town from here? And he said, Well, just take a right where they're going to build that new shopping mall... Go straight past where they're going to put in the freeway...Take a left at what's going to be the new sports center. And keep going until you hit the place where they're /thinking/ of building that drive-in bank. You can't miss it. And I said, This must be the place."

    Philip K. Dick wrote a book about real estate development on Mars. It's /Martian Time-Slip/. It introduced me to the word /gubble/. There's an unfortunate boy who experiences a wide range of time, the past, present and future all smeared together, and so he's incapacitated and has trouble communicating. He sees the future of all things, including of course the real estate development at the center of the story, as a combination of garbage and rubble. I think that's where the word comes from.

  4. 'Gubble' - my new favourite word!
