Wow.  Not as crazy as the spiraling one from a few years back, but still pretty awesome.

Lately Ive been thoroughly engrossed watching these extremely realistic physics simulations of car crashes. No one was harmed in the making of these videos except a few car manufactures' safety ratings. I hope to see Space Engine match these landscape renderings some day soon too.

Gnargenox, some day I hope all of these advanced rendering techniques are put into one game engine.  We could have hyper realistic graphics, environmental destruction, and all kinds of neat stuff.

Some day :(

Oh no worries. I have complete faith in Vladimir and I understand it's only a matter of time and money.

Yeah, the sound is silly, but I'm sharing it for the footage.

I have a few days in Singapore next week.  The Singapore-London flight alone is 14 hours 10 minutes.  And the flights were near full so I couldn't secure an aisle or window seat, neither way.  It's 2017.  Where are the suborbital flights?

Sorry this is the really bad version of 2017 where Clarke's dream has been delayed by a few decades, you are looking for 2077

Yeah. We should have had cheap suborbital economy flights in 2017.  2077 is for instant teleportation.

Clarke was both right and wrong about telecommunication, though. Yes, I can and do my work pretty much regardless of where I am in the world.  I make videocalls even more conveniently and cheaper than envisioned in "2001".  However, only during the past year, I have travelled several times related to work: Beijing, Prague, twice to SF, Chicago and Seoul, and now to Singapore.  The year before that: Buenos Aires, Berlin, Tokyo and multiple times to SF.  The irony: it's all for standardisation work enabling videoconferencing.
