The World of Thalia - An Ongoing Gaming Artistic Instalation

Recommended Posts

Thalia is the third Extra-solar Human colony. Humanity had found a precious treasure. And endless problems. I arrived to Thalia by accident. It would be my crucible, my home, my fight...

Mars - First Colony

 

Mars was the first planet to be colonized by Humanity. In 2245 the first real colonists landed on Mars to live there for good. But Mars was being terraformed since 2054, creating an atmosphere and self-sustained domes. It was the Mars colonization that would lead to the AI uplift and posterior clashes.

Did Humanity evolved when we jumped to the stars? As a whole I would say yes. As individuals probably not. But wonder did really entered our hearts. And then there is Thalia... And then there is me...

Mars - Humanity Artificial Sons

 

Almost 1 billion humans live on Mars. Mars is also the land of the Humanity Artificial Sons, the only organized AI nation created by the Artificial Intelligence spawn by Humanity. They occupy one third of Mars surface.

Captain's Log 1343.12

 

I arrived Thalia in a transport ship. There is a population of one hundred million colonist here. But the planet still remains a frontier world with all its wild beasts and dangers. The space-port was a barren location with rusty old lost containers and a couple of dirt roads.

I was here to rescue my crew, find my ship and retake her. But I had to be careful. I could be in the wanting list too...

Callisto
 
Callisto is the sixt moon of the planet Jupiter. It was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei. It is the third-largest moon in the Solar System and the second largest in the Jovian system, after Ganymede. Callisto has about 99% the diameter of the planet Mercury but only about a third of its mass. It is the fourth Galilean moon of Jupiter by distance, with an orbital radius of about 1,880,000 km. It does not form part of the orbital resonance that affects three inner Galilean satellites—Io, Europa and Ganymede—and thus does not experience appreciable tidal heating. Callisto's rotation is tidally locked to its revolution around Jupiter, so that the same hemisphere always faces inward; Jupiter appears to stand still in Callisto's sky. Callisto is less affected by Jupiter's magnetosphere than the other inner satellites because it orbits farther away.
 
2027_477324892314654_286562912_n.jpg?oh=

The surface of Callisto is heavily cratered and extremely old. It is surrounded by an extremely thin atmosphere composed of carbon dioxide and molecular oxygen, as well as by a rather intense ionosphere. Callisto was formed by slow accretion from the disk of the gas and dust that surrounded Jupiter after its formation. Callisto's gradual accretion and the lack of tidal heating meant that not enough heat was available for rapid differentiation. The slow convection in the interior of Callisto, which commenced soon after formation, led to partial differentiation and to the formation of a subsurface ocean at a depth of 100–150 km and a small, rocky core.
The presence of this ocean within Callisto is what spawn life in this moon. It was Callisto and the discovery of life that first gave Humanity the certainty that life appeared everywhere.

Callisto first colony was created to be a way-point in the exploration of the Solar System. But when the drilling into the underground ocean finally ended, the first stable colony was created in Callisto. The year was 2199. The first city was named Carbuncle.

Europa

 

Europa was the first almost Earth-like Planet to be colonized. Slightly smaller than Earth's Moon, Europa is primarily made of silicate rock and has an iron core. It has a tenuous atmosphere composed primarily of oxygen and nytrogen. Its surface is composed of water ice and is one of the smoothest in the Solar System. This surface is striated by cracks and streaks, while cratering is relatively infrequent. The youth and smoothness of the surface was first understood when a water ocean was found beneath it, which served as an abode for extraterrestrial life. Heat energy from tidal flexing causes the ocean to remain liquid and drives geological activity similar to plate tectonics.

Europa was colonized very quickly and by the year 2279 was already seen as the first completely self sustained Human colony.

Captain's Log 1343.16
 
 
The first people I saw, after having left the star-port, was a detachment of Colonial Militia. They eyed me suspiciously and I looked back at them.
I was told that they began to be kind of a protective police to the colonists here but now they were much more, being supported by several big corporations. Some of the outlaws they had put previously in prison were now part of the Militia. That was never a good sign, here or anywhere else in the universe.

Ganymede

 

Ganymede is a satellite of Jupiter and the largest moon in the Solar System. It is the seventh moon and third Galilean satellite outward from Jupiter. Completing an orbit in roughly seven days, Ganymede participates in a 1:2:4 orbital resonance with the moons Europa and Io, respectively. It has a diameter of 5,268 km (3,273 mi), 8% larger than that of the planet Mercury, but has only 45% of the latter's mass. Its diameter is 2% larger than that of Titan, the second largest moon. It also has the highest mass of all planetary satellites, with 2.02 times the mass of the Earth's moon.

Ganymede is composed of approximately equal amounts of silicate rock and water ice. It is a fully differentiated body with an iron-rich, liquid core. A salt-water ocean exists nearly 200 km below Ganymede surface, sandwiched between layers of ice. Its surface is composed of two main types of terrain. Dark regions, saturated with impact craters and dated to four billion years ago, cover about a third of the satellite. Lighter regions, cross-cut by extensive grooves and ridges and only slightly less ancient, cover the remainder. The cause of the light terrain's disrupted geology is the result of tectonic activity brought about by tidal heating.

Ganymede is the only satellite in the Solar System known to possess a magnetosphere, likely created through convection within the liquid iron core. The meager magnetosphere is buried within Jupiter's much larger magnetic field and would show only as a local perturbation of the field lines. The satellite has a thin oxygen atmosphere that includes O, O2, and possibly O3 (ozone). Atomic hydrogen is a minor atmospheric constituent.

The Human colony in Ganymede is small and has to rotate every three years due to the terrible impact of Jupiter's ionosphere to the human body. But the payment in staying those three years mining Ganymede pays well and the colony is a big and strange. Many Mac's live here as they can cope better with the terrible conditions of this colony.

The Evolution Funnel Theory

 

Evolution funnels living creatures to similar survival mechanics. Comparative data found in different planets with indigenous life points to similar survival systems, developing the same type of life engineering. To prove this, in every world where complex life evolved, teeth are present.

Strange red trees forming circles were at the outskirts of the space-port. Are these red trees that gives this reddish look to Thalia?

 

Then a Military Vehicle from the Colonial Army stopped near me. A corporal with an open smile asked me were was I going. I told him and he invited me in. I need a room, and a way to know where my crew is detained. I'm tired to the bone. "My name is Cochico", he said in Portuguese. "Mine is Kinnison", I replied and I start asking questions about the planet. It's strange. I've just arrived, but this world seems fit to me...

Titan

 

Titan (or Saturn VI) is the largest moon of Saturn. It is the only natural satellite that had a dense atmosphere prior to colonization, and the only object in the Solar system other than Earth with stable bodies of surface liquid.

Titan is the sixth ellipsoidal moon from Saturn. Frequently described as a planet-like moon, Titan has a diameter roughly 50% larger than Earth's moon and is 80% more massive. It is the second-largest moon in the Solar System, after Jupiter's moon Ganymede, and it is larger by volume than the smallest planet, Mercury, although only about 41% as massive. Titan was the first known moon of Saturn, discovered in 1655 by the Dutch astronomer Christiaan Huygens, and was the fifth moon of a planet apart from the Earth to be discovered.

Titan is primarily composed of water ice and rocky material. Much as with Venus prior to the Space Age, the dense, opaque atmosphere prevented understanding of Titan's surface until new information accumulated with the arrival of the Cassini–Huygens mission in 2004, including the discovery of liquid hydrocarbon lakes in the satellite's polar regions. The surface is geologically young; although mountains and several possible cryovolcanoes have been discovered, it is smooth and few impact craters have been found.

 

529380_477368998976910_982318955_n.jpg?o

 

The atmosphere of Titan is largely composed of nitrogen; minor components lead to the formation of methane and ethane clouds and nitrogen-rich organic smog. The climate—including wind and rain—creates surface features similar to those of Earth, such as dunes, rivers, lakes and seas (liquid methane and ethane), and deltas, and is dominated by seasonal weather patterns as on Earth. With its liquids (both surface and subsurface) and robust nitrogen atmosphere, Titan's methane cycle is viewed as an analog to Earth's water cycle, although at a much lower temperature.

The satellite is host of indigenous microbial extraterrestrial life. The low temperature and unforgiving atmosphere makes Titan a difficult planet to live on. But a Colony endures there, mainly to harvest methan and ethane.

New Columbus

 

New Columbus was the second planet in the Tau Ceti system. It was so closely related to Earth that the New Star Evangelists used it as proof of God's existence. Soon they would be proved wrong.

Tau Ceti is a star in the constellation Cetus that is spectrally similar to the Sun, although it has only about 78% of the Sun's mass. At a distance of just under 12 light-years from the Solar System, it is a relatively nearby star, and is the closest solitary G-class star. The star appears stable, with little stellar variation.

Tau Ceti is somewhat metal-deficient, which deficiency is usually correlated with no giant planets and few rocky planets.

There are seven planets orbiting Tau Ceti.

 

377591_477372632309880_1184631205_n.jpg?

 

New Colombus was a miracle to Humanity. An Earth like planet without any sentient species. Humanity started colonization three years after finding New Columbus and seven years after discovering the Fuchida-Sousa Engine. Faster than Light Speed was available to Humanity and the galaxy was now our swimming pool. Or so it seemed at the time...

It took me two days to be able to find one of the old underground shelters from the first days of colonization. I was more lucky in finding a ride to move around the planet. I rented an old military Cicada all purpose vehicle. It still had the rocket holders below the wings. It might be useful still.

      As some of you know, @buglips*the*goblin and I paint some German Infantry of WWII for Warlord Games tabletop game Bolt Action - or another similar set of rules. You can find our WIP thread ->here<-
       
      But though the key to success is hard work, all good projects some when end somewhere. To celebrate this, we decided to set up a Show Off thread. So ... enjoy what we come up with until all of our Germans are painted ... (which will be in ten years or so)
       
      First off - the first 5 men of my winter unit.
       
      Enjoy
