Epic Short Film ‘Wanderers’ Envisions Humanity’s Expansion in Space

“Wanderers” is a short science fiction film by Erik Wernquist – a digital artist and animator from Stockholm, Sweden.

Wernquist notes that the film is a vision of humanity’s future expansion into the solar system. Although admittedly speculative, the visuals in the film are all based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens.

All the locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.

Adding to the compelling nature of this video is the narrative voice of astronomer and author Carl Sagan. The audio used are excerpts from Sagan’s own reading of his book ‘Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space’ (1994).
