MESSENGER of the Gods

We're in a bit of a lull with Mercury right now; the MESSENGER probe passed it a few months ago, and it'll be a little while before it makes pass #2. In the meantime, though, you can watch a video I made about the planet and the probe for SpaceRip, part of the high-res video series I've been doing with professional director/producer Tom Lucas.

For American viewers, it's also up on Hulu, and it's available through Joost as well. I think this is the best one we've done so far. We filmed it at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science in their Gates Planetarium. If you happen to be in the Denver area, drop by and show them some love; they're good folks.

The other videos in the series so far are Saturn: Lord of the Rings, Black Hole Death Rays, The Changing Face of Mars, and Cookbook of Galactic Cannibalism.
