Slow Light and Big Space
Date: 2/6/15 12:18 pm

One of the (many) things I enjoy about Halo is the setting - not just the specific planets and their histories, but just being in space.

Star Trek, Star Wars, all of them - they're happening in an absolutely HUGE (and my all caps obviously doesn't do it justice) area and this video...

...helped me appreciate that vastness again.

I get that we have to bring things back to what we know (slipspace, warp drives) as things would get pretty boring, it continually amazes me just how grand things really are in space.

Bonus thought: I didn't realize how much I think of the planets as friends. On the video, when the light finally reached Jupiter I felt like i was seeing an old friend :-)

Thanks to for the link.
