An astounding new short film about the possibilities of manned space exploration is spreading like wildfire across the internet, and the man behind it is a Swede.

The film is called "Wanderers", and paints a picture of what could be, if mankind tried to colonise other planets in the Solar System.

Based on real NASA images from the probes that have explored our neighbourhood in space, "Wanderers" has won the interest of the US Space agency itself, featuring on its popular "Astronomy Photo of the Day".

Radio Sweden spoke to computer graphics animator Erik Wernquist, who is the man behind the short film. He tells us how he created the images, and why he wanted to make the film in the first place.
