The Engine Burns BlueThis image shows a cutting-edge solar-electric propulsion thruster in development at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., that uses xenon ions for propulsion. An earlier version of this solar-electric propulsion engine has been flying on NASA’s Dawn mission to the asteroid belt.
This engine is being considered as part of the Asteroid Initiative, a proposal to robotically capture a small near-Earth asteroid and redirect it safely to a stable orbit in the Earth-moon system where astronauts can visit and explore it. This image was taken through a porthole in a vacuum chamber at JPL where the ion engine is being tested.

I spend half my time at work on ion propulsion so I’m into this NASA image of the day.
notice how this isn’t even from the movie- this is literally animated… fucking drawn on the computer
As a video editor myself I can say that this looks strongly like they used a program like vegas or after effects for this. It looks like they’ve pasturized and enhanced the color and contrast and ever defined the contours of the lines to make everything look like it would in a comic book.
Yeah i was guessing something like that, because to actually trace over everything etc. would probably take a really really long time, either way it looks really good
Oh very much so. Even just to do the above in the right order at the right levels so as to make it look this way without under or overdoing it means they have to have quite a lot of skill and experience. Absolutely wonderful that people can do this sort of thing.
