That's what comes out from playing with fractals a whole lot - a nice spacescape. I decided to use a gradient which could express the dawn of a new era, a coming of something totally unexpected that could help humanity progress toward good fortune and an even brighter future. When you look at the future with optimism, that's what you see: the bright side of the universe, one of the most breath-taking views ever, for everyone of us.

We may never know exactly how big the universe is but my guess is that it would easily be 10 the 20 something power wide in all directions than the known universe maybe closer to 10^30 times wider, thank you for this.

That would be awesome if this were about "desktop size" (1366x768; that's mine).

I made it in a different size for printing purposes. I like rectangular formats too. :)

:noes: This is so striking!

The circles within circles remind me a lot of Gallifreyan...which is perfect since Doctor Who deals so much with traveling in space. :XD:

Really? :XD: I have never watched Dr Who, would you mind explaining about Gallifreyan? =P

intelligenceice Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012
Oh! :XD: Gallifreyan is really beautiful in my opinion, it's the written language of the Time Lords (The Doctor in Doctor Who is a Time Lord). It looks like a lot of circles within each other, rather than letters; here's a cool (fan-made) example I found on a clock: [link]

I've lost a lot of respect for you now, using Windblows only software, what about all the Linux/Unix variant users, and all those innocent ignorant MAC OSX users! SHAME!, where are your morals and ethics, I mean sure it's a great picture, but it's tainted, TAINTED I SAY!!! :pissedoff:

Breathtaking. It truly gives me the thought of the mysterious nature of all that we do not know in the unverse, yet shown in a way not much different than what we have seen (if that makes any sense). Great job!

Yes, you mean the imagery is like that of the well known space art, but it goes beyond what you actually see in it, right? I can understand you and your comment is wonderful. Thanks! :hug:
