Deep Dream Bot
It eventually had to happen - an online web interface by Psychic VR Lab lets you upload Jpeg images to be processed with the Deep Dream code.

Got the Titan IV resized and made some preliminary mass and measurements:

DRY MASS: 699.5 tons
STRUCTURE: 308.5 tons
TANKAGE: 261.5 tons
ENGINE MASS: 30 tons
PAYLOAD: 100 tons
PROPELLANT MASS: 3087.63 tons
WET MASS: 3787.13 tons
MASS RATIO: 5
EXAUST VELOCITY(NERVA x3): 16000 m/s
DELTA V: 25,751 m/s

That's enough change in velocity to send the Titan IV from Earth to Mars in a little under two months.

As always, thanks to +Winchell Chung​ for the Atomic Rockets website - particularly the Basic and Advanced Design pages, the Engine List, and the Mission Tables.

Enjoy!

Asteroid mining crew transport WIP

The radiator panels presented some challenge in terms of lighting. I am using physically based shaders programmed according to this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pJrlEzbNek&list=PLlH00768JwqFtFtsTKBxnLwadWsNo36R-&index=6

There are three logical coloration schemes for radiator panels, white, black, and silvery metallic. After testing I chose a silvery metallic surface, which presents a lighting challenge because it picks up the blackness of space, this does look more appealing to my eye than either the bright white or flat black options. It did take a good deal of experimentation to get the lighting of the scene where I wanted it.

After some discussion with +Winchell Chung and some research, I've decided the pattern of plumbing within the panels themselves would not be naked-eye visible at the camera distance under these lighting conditions.

One change I am considering is to address the lack of tension-cable rigging, it seems to me this might be required to prevent excessive vibration/movement of the radiator panels under thrust or during maneuver.

Aside from that, the propulsion bus is complete, next up is the payload section and rotating crew habitat. I am going into a bit more detail on these, discarding the simple  place-holder cylinders of the diagram.  

Design based on diagram found on Aerospace Projects Review http://www.aerospaceprojectsreview.com/blog/?p=2174

No! No! No!
New Horizons Pluto space probe takes nine years to travel to its destination. 
Now it is a few days away from its close fly-by where it will have a few hours to take pictures. And suddenly there is a communications glitch!

I found the rest of the comic online, but it was real depressing.
