The SF artwork by CGHub artist DeeGS is fun to look at.
A beautiful movie poster for the classic SF film Journey to the Seventh Planet. The imagery calls up all the classic tropes of SF – bug eyed aliens, square jawed spacemen battling them.
I am intrigued by the poster’s invitation to ‘Travel X times faster than my imagination.’ Solving for X might be a challenge.

I am a big fan of John Berkey’s paintings, though the prices are very much out of my range. The images bespeak a space-borne industrial capacity that would make our current global industry look like a craft fair. In some ways I see ventures like asteroid mining as baby steps to our grandchildren working in awesome structures like the one above.

How does it work?
A small power led (no heat, small power consumption) reflects on the white rear, which diffuses a smooth and uniform light.
On the wider, SF aspect of things, lamps like this are appealing to a fairly narrow market, and at the price point very few would sell in a traditional storefront. 20 years ago, these lamps would not exist. Right now, they are available over the internet and quite accessible, and so the maker gets a bit of income. Hooray. What will it look like 20 years from now?

Moebius, otherwise known as Jean Giraud, passed away last month. When I was a teenage comic collector I held one of the graphic novels he illustrated as my most prized possession (Moebius 1: Upon a Star – I still own it).
Concept Ships has a gorgeous collection of some of his artworks, well worth a visit.
