Argosy: Spin Cycle



After the tethers connecting the 2 expedition ships have been checked, the combined vessels are slowly spun up to induce one third of a G in the 2 Mission Modules (Mars Gravity). In this configuration, the ships will coast until a week before reaching Mars. In this image, Mars is now visible.

Modeled and rendered in Lightwave 10.

Thanks for having a look!

I have rarely seen art which depicts with such elegance the hard science of realistic interplanetary spaceflight. Your work is outstanding.
