Orbiting Mars by Ludo38 Orbiting Mars by Ludo38
Another picture I've made in the spirit of Red Mars, the powerful novel by Kim Stanley Robinson.
We are looking at Mars from a manned spacecraft. The 200km wide view is on Ophir Chasma, a region of Valles Marineris.

The photos used for this image are both from NASA :
-The ISS cupola shot during STS-130 (2010) [link]
-Ophir Chasma shot by Viking 1 in 1976 [link]

As always, I made the photomanipulation with GIMP on Linux-Ubuntu.

yes sure. Yesterday I've watched the live broadcast of their conference. Pretty scary project -humanly speaking- but maybe it's gonna work fine and will be full of knowledge on what we can achieve next. I'm just a bit afraid the size of the spacecraft will feel way too small for the travelers for such a long trip...

Bad work. You need to use the feather edges.
