voiceover by carl sagan. video:  

"I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas."

Great line from Moby Dick read by Carl Sagan.

I'm still trying to calculate how many years 400 generations is. 10,000 years?

That Imgur link has a lot more images and a great explanation, too:

Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available. Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea with the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.
