    Nice. But considering the bit rate of this clip, shouldn't it
    have been better looking? I wonder what the source material

  3. Well, the source material (at least some of it) was on the esa site.
    How it is made is also explained on that link I gave.
    The resolution is VERY GOOD, I watch with Linux mplayer (latest).
    Those stars for example look awfully real (I have starry nights like
    that here, you just stand under the sky and look up, amazing..)
    But detail is limited by the camera system, distance, processing too perhaps.
    Only way to get more detail would be to go there.... :)

    I dunno how much they digitized and acquired that way, but a remote feature
    to 'steer' would be cool, and blending in a HUD with distance, meters / pixel,
    heading... Well the sun gives some idea... The stars too.

  4. Failed to play here. Is this video from the mars rover or something?

    I'm at the disadvantage of reading only one language and not
    that one. Tho I'd really like to know the explanation. Do you
    know if there is an English version of that page?
    Yes, it is. My only point is that Divx does not need to be
    encoded at 8 mbps video.
    Trust me, not a sight available in Los Angeles ;-0) However
    there are still some few remote places in the USA where the
    staggering sight that is the night sky can still be had.
    Send postcards!!!
    Any way, thanks for the URL. It was a good view.
