Nightflight to venus - Way out there in space
Nightflight to venus - Our new favorite place
Nightflight to venus - All systems are go
Nightflight to venus - The sky is aglow

[1:52]
Ladies and gentlemen, we have had a successful take-off on this first nightflight to venus.
Our flying time will be eight hours.
You'll be travelling at a speed of 2.183 miles per second.

[2:16]
Nightflight to venus

[2:32]
Nightflight to venus

[3:58]
Captain - unidentified object at eight o'clock. Two million miles away.
Stand by for emergency maneuver.
Object coming closer with the speed of light. We have eight more seconds.
Changing course by 4.6 degrees.
Order executed.

[4:24]
Ladies and gentlemen, in a few minutes, we are going to be landing on venus.
Push the button on your left side. The safety mechanism will do the rest for you.
We hope you enjoyed the world's first nightflight to venus.
Have a good time there.
