Those two images are almost identical (look at the clouds in the upper left)!
Yeah I was looking at that too, it's weird, maybe the image Voekoevaka posted is also by Adolf Schaller?..

When I look back on old space art like this, I can't help but think that it looks silly.
Same, I think we can say that the tools & methods used for create suchs artwork have really evolved since then, knowledge also. But still, these images of Jovian's clouds affect my imagination quite well. cool

I don't know. I just found it on the internet last year, il a french website. But it's obvious the two images are inspired by each other.

I know those paintings aren't technically accurate, but it shows the vision we had of gas giants.





Want some music of mine ? Please go here !

If any of you are interested you should cast a vote for what Pluto's newest moons should be named (currently they're known as P4 and P5). My vote is for Acheron and Erebus smile

Little-known space fact: the first rock album ever played in space was Pink Floyd's live album "Delicate Sound of Thunder", which was listened to by the crew of Soyuz TM-7 during their journey to the Mir space station in 1988. The members of the band attended the launch. Delicate Sound of Thunder was also the only Pink Floyd album that was officially released in the Soviet Union.

Aw man, I was just about to post that video since it's today's APOD, then realized you've already shared it. Which is fitting, since it goes with your name and avatar perfectly. biggrin

Anyway, very surreal and beautiful footage there. Strange to think those looping tendrils of plasma are actually cooler than the surrounding medium.

Someone posted that on the Russian forum recently too. My response was to post this link: http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a010000/a011100/a011168/index.html where you can find the highest quality download versions of that video (1080p30, up to 4GB size QT files smile ). I don't have the bandwidth to check out the outrageously huge ones, but the 1GB one is pretty nice.



This video however is I think even more beautiful. Don't even try anything less than the 1 GB version of it, it doesn't do it justice at all (read: compression artifacts). Watch on the highest res display you can. Ignore the slightly annoying narration at the beginning.
