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) :)

:D well, i was just about to answer that it is possible in general, but that it's a hard piece of work. I think you're answer should be enough ;)

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.
