I wish they included Tatooine’s twin moons, though. BTW, how cool is it to share a post from Earth ?

What if other planetary bodies orbited our world at the same distance as the Moon?

Please share 🙂 Thank You!

  1. That was too cool! Thanks for reposting Rajini Rao

    Jupitor would make for an imposing neighbour!

  3. Aw man, I wanted to see Saturn up close 🙂

  4. Beautiful video, it gave me chills. There’s only one problem: if Jupiter were that close to Earth, no life as we currently know it could exist on this planet. Could our planet itself even withstand the monstrously destructive forces of that immense neighbor pushing/pulling it apart?

    Marc Ponomareff , would make for some awesome surfing, yes?

  6. Rajini Rao, perhaps if one was the Silver Surfer 🙂 The rest of us would be harshed by some serious rash.

    You make me laugh, Rajini Rao !!!

  8. Very cool! I wish they had included the forest moon of Endor ;]

    José P. Llongueras , as a friend of all Ewoks, I must insist on that too!

  10. One of Iain Banks’ novels describes sailing on gas giants. Instead of a dense keel in a fluid, the “ships” have big electromagnets that interact with the planet’s own fearsome magnetism.

    The Star Wars universe’s physics is lame by comparison. That long chat between Luke and Obi-Wan in the Death Star trench… at the speed the X-Wing’s said to be moving, it’s going around the Death Star six times per second.

    Sailing on gas giants.. so poetic! Reminds me of this:

    One ship sails east and another sails west

    With the self-same winds that blow.

    Tis the set of the sail and not the gale

    Which determines the way they go.

    As the winds of the sea are the ways of fate

    As we voyage along through life,

    Tis the act of the soul that determines the goal,

    And not the calm or the strife.

    -Ella Wheeler Wilcox
