Another one of the many failed attempts at producing an intelligent species. Here is all that remains of a species that failed to reconcile economic growth, energy requirements and ecological issues. This is the best preserved of their cities, inundated by rising sea levels, caused through a runaway ‘Greenhouse’ effect.
The city is actually quite well preserved, considering that exo-archaeologists, calculate that more than a millennium has passed since any living creature last walked, swam or flew on the planet.
Now a planetary laboratory, the planet, now known as Reek, is used to test new terraforming processes.
It is thought that if this planet can be brought back to life, then the problems that beset Old Earth, can at last be addressed.

    Wicked! Looks great, some truth to that story perhaps!

  • I hope not Craig, I think humans need to be close to the edge, it’s where all the fun, excitement and progress happens. Our species is at it’s best, when faced with adversary . . .
    Pleased you like the images Craig, thank you . . .
