At a cost of about $125,000,000 per kg for an Atlas V rocket, sending it to Mars would only bankrupt every forum member, combined :lol:

It can handle it! The puzzle was designed to survive being dropped or crushed during shipping.

I feel sorry for Venus stuck in a runaway Pentultimate effect :lol:

Otherwise, it must have taken you *months* to get the special effects looking so perfect! :lol:

On February 5th, the Pentultimate made a quick stop at the International Space Station as part of the P.A.S.S. project (Puzzle Around the Solar System). Luckily, it was just in time for the first space-to-earth musical collaboration featuring commander Chris Hadfield, Barenaked Ladies and The Wexford Gleeks.

Enjoy,

Skarabajo.

I guess it will go largely unnoticed due to the nature of this thread but those special effects are outstanding.

You are my new favourite person :shock: I really liked the 'Hadfield looking at the puzzle' effect.

What a nice thing to say QuickSolver! :D
I really enjoyed analyzing Hadfield's movements and synchronizing the Pentultimate's floating trajectory accordingly.
