Seveneves – Approaching Whitesky

Hey folks, sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, mainly due to RealLife(TM) getting in the way! Merry Christmas to you all, and have a safe and pleasant New Year!

Approaching Whitesky – Scenes (loosely based) on events in the novel “Seveneves” by Neal Stephenson.

The clips illustrate the basic Arklet configurations, and the evolution of Izzy with the first “Hamster Tubes” linking the tacked-on modules and components. Also shown are the chaotic results of the break-up of the Moon, the sky littered with lunar fragments and spacecraft wreckage.

**This animation is based largely on the techniques by the talented and generous Karsten Wende.** Especially his “Test for Alpha Layer Lensflares”:

Thanks Karsten for all your tutorials and examples for making
great effects within Imagine3D v2.19.
