europan spider coral by fraterchaos europan spider coral by fraterchaos
Mandelbulb 3D 1.8.2

Tweak of one of my older works "captured"

Europan Spider Coral is an unique lifeform found under the outer icy layer of Jupiter's moon Europa. Unlike many of the lifeforms found there, the spider corals live in the colder, upper levels of the inner ocean, surviving off the nutrients provided by the lighter plankton. Most lifeforms tend to stay more within the central zone where the waters are warmer and there is more current exchange providing higher levels of nutrients.

Amazing depth of field!!! Haven't glasses handy, to see the anaglyph version, but will do at the end of the month in Madrid. The person I'm going to see has for sure :-)

I like the structure, and how it tends towards discontinuity in the upper right area.

I also like your description of it, found on Europa. You remember what was told of us as HAL's last message in 2001: A space Odyssey? "All these worlds are yours except Europa. Attempt no landing there. Use them together. Use them in peace."

Is this why?

:iconfraterchaos:
fraterchaos Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well partly... the line from the movie sparked my first interest in Europa, but since that time, I've kept a close eye on theories about that moon, and the current thinking is that there could very well be life under the ice... they believe (and because people have seen liquid water spouts) that there is an ocean under the outer layer of ice and likely an icy core deep inside... but the central area of the ocean could be warm enough (due to tidal stresses) to harbor life... so I have done a few renders that looked like some sort of underwater plants which I named for hypothetical species that might live there.

thanks!

Had to fave this one because I like spiders. An interesting sidebar on the coral spider, too!
Reply
:iconfraterchaos:
fraterchaos Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well, it's all made up of course... some scientists believe there could be life under the ice on Jupiter's moon Europa... due to the gravitational forces of Jupiter and it's other moons, there is great stress on Europa, which very likely generates enough heat to keep a liquid "sea" in between the outer layer of ice and a likely inner layer or core of more ice, and life might be able to exist in that sea... so when I saw this I said, that could be an alien coral that they would find under the ice on Europa...

thank you dear!

HaHa. I really thought there was scientific evidence of this. See how gullible I can be. The way you phrased it sounded so realistic.
Reply
:iconfraterchaos:
fraterchaos Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well it has not been proven, but there is some evidence, the cracks on the surface indicate that its not solid ice all the way through, and they have seen and photographed spouts of liquid water coming from the surface, which certainly proves there is liquid water under the ice... whether anything lives there is anyone's guess... but look at Earth, anywhere life CAN exists, it DOES exist... why should other world be any different?
