Several billion years from now our Sun will become a swollen caricature of itself – a red giant. When that happens the icy moons around the outer planets will warm up. Europa, a satellite of Jupiter which at the present possesses a crust of solid i...

3001 Earth Odyssey
Here I show the Earth in the deep future, when our technology has advanced to the point that we can clearly see it from orbit. Or perhaps it's a different planet elsewhere in the universe, somewhat like the Earth but having a greater technology than ...

Blue Mars IV
Astronomers are uncovering more and more evidence that seems to indicate that the planet Mars, now dry and lifeless, was once able to support liquid water. This impression shows the red planet in the future, when humans have terraformed and colonised...

Mars and Phobos From Orbit
Artwork showing Mars and one of its moon (Phobos) from the window of a space vehicle, some time in the future. Maybe, in the future, tourists will be able to enjoy views like this in space.

In this movie, the lowland areas of Mars are covered in a blue sea. Mars' two moons, Phobos and Deimos, are seen transiting across the planet in that order. It is thought that liquid water existed on Mars millions of years ago, but it is now too cold...

This is what the Earth may look like when the Sun becomes a red giant. It's similar to Within the Realm of a Dying Sun, but this one shows the planet at an advanced stage, when it has become almost fully molten as a result of the heat of the gian
