No swimming this time out .. the lakes on this airless world orbiting a double sun are liquid methane, not H2O. But yes, that’s a diamond in the sky. And they’ve found some. For real!


Much earlier in life it would have been a star but upon its collapse, it left a massive diamond core. That’s what becomes of carbon if compressed enough ~ provided the compression isn’t great enough to take it further yet, in which event it would have turned into a neutron star or singularity (black hole). This one has strayed into another system from the looks of it…

Don’t know WHO is down there… ! Luckily the Big Blue Box is methane-proof, cold-proof, vacuum-proof and generally impervious to everything ~ with the possible exception of pretty Earth-girls, who seem to get aboard with amazing regularity.


For all you Whovians, a little music! I didn’t make this video … looks like officerdibbles was inspired to combine the Doctor with imagery from NASA. (More information on the search for extra-solar worlds below.)

A number of planets have been confirmed in binary systems and in at least one case ~ HD 188753 Ab ~ worlds have formed in triple-stellar systems, where the sunsets really have to be spectacular! This depicts a system with twin suns and multiple planets like our own. More of those are being found as well. One of the most intriguing is the Kepler-11 system. Six planets have been found, and their orbits are like those we know at home ~ circular, not wildly erratic as most seem to be. That was only one of many surprises awaiting astronomers who thought before the age of exo-world discovery dawned, that circular orbits were probably the norm throughout the Universe. Nearly everything they thought about the Universe is undergoing question at this point, including how planets form at all, where they form, and what sorts of places actually exist out there.

Don’t you wish you had an invitation to the Big Blue Box yourself so you could tour the galaxy and see it all?? I took the number down ~ they showed it on tv ~ but I can’t seem to get an answer. Darn!

I was going to do something “serious” with this… simply my interpretation of a landscape on another world… but first of all I have trouble doing “serious” for longer than a day (!) and secondly, the image screamed for a focal point so there it is!

Photoshop Creation

Most of this is custom. I began with a star-scape from the Hubble but it’s barely visible. I made the diamond with Flexify and the planets as well (but for the little green one, taken from a shot of Neptune). The foreground is done with Flood and the Tardis is mine (I do own a model!)

Multiple light-layers, color-layers, textures are applied in CS2
