Interstellar Wormhole
71.2K Views|1 Today
Art inspired by the movie Interstellar, as you might have suspected from the title. :)

In General Relativity wormholes can (hypothetically) appear in certain points in spacetime, where space is bend so much that two seperate points in space are connected through a tunnel. Contrary to many depictions in movies and literature, the entrance of a wormhole itself is actually not flat 2D circle but a 3-dimensional sphere.
If you are interested in science fiction with real physics, then Interstellar is a must-see for you! :-) It is not only very accurate, but also visually enganging. 

Thanks go to Dagohbert for his asteroids and to in-the-skies who provided parts of the texture I used for the wormhole. 

On the right you can download two HD wallpapers in the sizes 2560*1440 and 1920*1080. Enjoy!

Space art is cool! What software did you use to create this! Do you enhance the lighting? Where did the photo come from? How as the photo created? I was interested in learning more about this image. Great job!

Hey :-) This was made entirely made in photoshop. Most of it was digitally painted with help of some resources that were mentioned in the image description (e.g.: 3D sphere renders as part of the wormhole). Thanks for the compliment and your interest in my work!

This is one of the most beautiful space art I've seen on DA. The colors are amazing. Btw, Interstellar is one of my favorite movies. Definitely in my top 5. One thing we lack is enough good sci-fi/space/alien type movies. 

EDIT: This is now my new pc background! Thank you.

The art is amazing! Thank you for creating this :) I was wondering whether I could use it as a background for an online sci-fi roleplay?

Thank you! What exactly is it for? Your personal profile, a card, or the website itself? Can you show me the website?

Um...it's hard to explain. Basically, I want to use as a background for an introductory post for the roleplay. Here's the website: rpnation.com
