Would you like to ski Kilimanjaro but you're snowed under with work?
Do you dream of a vacation at the bottom of the ocean, but you can't float the bill?
Have you always wanted to climb the mountains of Mars, but now you're over the hill?

It's time to lose yourself in some fantastical ficto-real landscapes. Imagine seeing the rings of Saturn above your head, or seeing the Earth rise whilst trekking over hard moon-rock... Well now you can, almost, very nearly experience these things...

Artist Ron Miller takes us on a journey to eight of the most
breathtaking views that await explorers of our solar system.
The scale of these natural wonders dwarfs anything Earth has to offer.
What might we see and feel if we could travel to these distant domains?
By interpreting data from probes such as NASA's Cassini, which is now
exploring the Saturnian system, and MESSENGER, which goes into orbit
around Mercury in March 2011, the artist's eye allows us an early visit
to these unforgettable locales.

Take a trip round the 8 wonders of our solar system...

I just stumbled across this and had to search ATS to see if there was a thread on it.

I love this interactive site.

Not sure how to embed this video since it's not YouTube or Google, but here's a link to a fly-through of Mars' Valles Marineris.
