Jupiter Great Red Spot - Space Movie

Full HD movie of a future space probe being dispatched into the Great Red Spot on the planet Jupiter.

Many storms and votices have been observed on Jupiter. They are usually visible as red, white or brown spots swirling through the planets atmosphere. The largest of these storms is called the Great Red Spot. From observations, we know that the Great Red Spot has existied for at least 300 years. It is the largest storm in the Solar System and is so big that it could swollow several Earths.

This movie depicts a spaceship travelling to Jupiter and then dispatching a space probe towards the planet and into the Great Red Spot. The space probe finally disintegrating as in drops into the Jovian atmosphere.



The Solar System - Space Movie

Solar System movie showing the 8 planets of the Solar System orbiting the Sun. As we move out from Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, towards the gas giant planets of the outer Solar System, each of the planets can been seen taking longer to complete a single orbit. All of the planets orbit the Sun in the same counter-clockwise direction.

This Solar System movie is one of series or space and planet movies available via solarsystemvideos on youtube, or driectly from the Spacetime website at

Io - Moon of Jupiter - Space Movie

Watch a future space probe decend and land on Io, one of Jupiter's 4 largest moons

The Solar System contains at least 176 moons, which orbit six of the eight planets. Mercury and Venus are the only two planets which do not have a moon. Of the terrestrial planets, Earth has one moon, which we call the Moon; and Mars has two small moons, called Phobos and Deimos.

Once we move into the outer Solar System, the large gas giant planets have many moons. Jupiter is thought to have the most moons with a current total of 67, of which 4 (Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto) are comparable in size to Earth's moon. Next comes Saturn with 62 moons including Titan, a large moon with a thick atmosphere of Methane. Uranus and Neptune also have many moons with 27 and 13 respectively.Some of the moons in the Solar System were created at the same time as their parent planets, while others may have formed separately, and then been captured when drifting to close to one of the planets.

This video depicts a future spacecraft travelling the Solar System and arriving at Saturn. A probe is then despatched and proceeds to mine the rocks of Saturn's rings, The Solar System Video of Saturn's Rings is part of a series of Solar System videos showing various planets and moons, and the space probes that may one day explore them.
