Procedural Planets

Is it possible to do procedural planets in unity? I found a tech demo of a game where they showcase exactly what I want to do, but I don't know if it's possible for me to do it.

Here's the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbjBH3zAzMo

Basically, I want to go from space to the planet surface in real-time, but I don't know how to do it.

Dont' know the answer, but awesome tech demo (especially the direct space to planet navigation) :)

In short: Yes.
Minthos already gave you a lot of links that might be interresting. Also have a look at Unitys Mesh class and the procedural Mesh example.
