My A1 drawing nearing completion. Copic Markers and A1 sized paper (841cm x 591cm).
It represents a dying sol type star system. Sabotaged by Ninja Death Pixies from the Sol System, the once mighty star known simply as Fred (don’t let children onboard exploration vessels in the future, and most certainly don’t let them name newly discovered stars!!!) is going supernova.
The star mysteriously rapidly started collaspsing in on itself and then expanded in 2 massive growth spurts, also spitting out massive solar flares and spikes of all manner of unhealthy radiation. The timing of it was relatively slow in the general scheme of things but as far as galatic lifespans go, poor Fred was dead before his time. Though his death is ongoing even now in his transition to a black hole.
The drawing shows the system mid way through its final death throws and the star Fred nearly double
his it’s original size and still emitting MASSIVE rays of radiation and heat and unhealthy badness.
The planets in the system were subjected to all manner of radiation and cosmic rays and gravitation pull so started to break up and eject all manner of detritus.
All was not lost though, only one of the planets had any trace of life and that would be the planet Haven (ironic name much?). First in line from Fred, Haven had a colony of approximately 6042 colonists who were all safetly evacuated. Sadly not all of the wildlife could be saved but a vast majority of the species were safetly secured on a passing freighter converted to Ark duties.
The planets and other satellites of the Star Fred are all going through various death throes and Haven is in probably the worst state with whole chunks now missing. The next in line from Haven is the planet Storite which was home to all manner of valuable ores. Recently scientists discovered that when superheated by various rare solar radiation, several of the ores found in their raw state become somewhat unstable. Hence why Storite is now appearing nearly hollow.
The third planet from the Star is the planet Foxtrot 54b. The planet can best be described as a roughly spherical worthess inanimate lump of rock. No great loss in the big old scheme of things.
The fourth planet from the star is the planet Progress that was next in line for tera forming attempts. That won’t be happening anymore. Sesimic shifts and one major vent of matter and atmosphere are the ‘only’ issues that have effected Progress so far in the picture, but theres worse to come.
