Beautiful visualization is one of the functions of the “Planetary generator” spectrum. Geronimo Villanueva, a scientist, a planetary scientist from space flight Center NASA’s Goddard in Greenbelt (Maryland, USA), created a simulation of a sunset on the Uranium during the development of a computer model for a possible future mission to this planet.
Such a model would help scientists to interpret the results of photometry to probe the atmosphere of Uranus. To check the accuracy of their calculations Villanueva modeled the colors of the atmospheres of other planets, the result is an impressive video.
The video demonstrates the sunsets on Earth, but also Venus, Mars, Uranus and Titan
The simulation is not completely accurate, but has a broad scientific basis. It is, in fact, already is a new feature widely used by scientists on-line tool called “Planetary generator” spectrum. It Villanueva has developed together with colleagues from NASA. Generator helps scientists to recreate how the light is transmitted through planetary atmospheres, exoplanets, moons and comets to better understand what is involved in their atmosphere and surface.
