You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

Wallpaper: Ganymede at Half Phase
Ganymede in the best “disk” detail I have ever seen. There are some great close up images of Ganymede, but for some reason most of the images that show the moon from a distance are usually blurry and lack the detail you see here. This composite is by Ted Stryk but the trick is that his original was only in black and white, so I ham-handedly used other images of Ganymede to colorize it. So… the color here is interpretive and not based upon actual data.

    This is a great picture — however, “Jupiter” is misspelled (Jipiter).
