In the second half of the 21st century, Stellar Interceptors like the one pictured here will guard the earth by patrolling for high energy solar flare activity that might endanger humans due to our thinning atmosphere, as well as cause disruption of telecommunications. The Interceptors accomplish this task by emitting directional fields of ionizing radiation that, fired many millions of miles away from earth, cause just enough deflection to alter the path of the flare’s energy a fraction of a degree, sending it harmlessly into space.

Created in Mandelbulb 3D v.1.8.9 (“M3D”) starting with parameters from Mandelblub3DPong20 by Sabine62 (see below). Scale up/final render and other work done in GIMP v.2.8. Best if viewed larger.

tech notes: 12 24 16 from Mandelblub3DPong20 by Sabine62
