this one is overdue by two years. i should have made an artwork for this little planet back when it was discovered. but better late than never i guess.^^; this was mentioned to me by a fellow deviant. i really had fun working on this one, especially playing around with the planet's texture and lighting.:) i think the texture came out pretty good for what i was looking for, not a ball of lava but not a dry rock, a nice good mix of the two thats just right!<--- yes, bad pun alert.^^; also managed to make the planet look like it has a slight hotspot, and it came out ok. ooh look, a background too thats not flat black!:p how did i manage that one?

--> let thou's eyes be appeased by my offering, but do not eat it despite its meat ball-like appearance, because eetz a spizee one! <---- yes... another bad jok.. (hit by a tomato)!

Description

Alpha Centauri Bb was discovered by an European Team of Astronomers when they were measuring the radial velocity of the sun-like star Alpha Centauri B in the Alpha Centauri trinary star system. When they removed known sources of interferance from the data, they were left with risudual signals which led to the discovery of the planet. If the planet is confirmed, it would be the closest known exoplanet to be detected , at a distance of just 4.366 ly, and also the smallest mass exoplanet with a minimum mass of only 1.13 earth masses, to be orbiting a sun-like star.

The planet is most likely to have a composition similar to earth's being a third metals and two-thirds silicates. this would give it radius only slightly larger than earths. However, due to its position in the system, it may have formed with a higher concentration of metals and have a density greater than earth's. This would cause the planet to have a radius slightly smaller than earth's. Despite this, the surface gravity is likely to be very similar to earth's.

The planet orbit's extremely closely to the star at only about 4% the earth-sun distance and orbits the star once every 3.2357 days. At such a close distance, it is most likely tidally locked to the star, always presenting the same face toward the star. Also, at such a close proximity to the star, there is likely no atmosphere on the planet due to it being blasted away by the star's powerful stellar wind. These two factors would cause an extreme temperature difference between the day and night sides of the planet.
On the day side, the star would loom as a large disc in the planet's sky and the temperature may be as high as 1,200 Celsius, which is above the melting point of many metals and silicates. This may lead to large pools of lava on the surface of the day side, leading to the depiction of the planet as a lava world. There may be a temporary tenuous atmosphere composed of metal and silicate ions and atoms knocked off of the surface by the star's stellar wind.
On the night side, things would be quite different as the environment plumets to sub-zero temperatures. There would be large formations of rock and metal frozen on the surface in the presence of the biting cold, and probably glazed over with some ices composed of the planets now frozen out atmosphere if any were present on the night side. There may be the occasional hotspot caused by the planet's own internal volcanism, but there would be no warmth anywhere else in the eternal night. Every few years, the primary star of the system, Alpha Centauri A, would be in a position where it would rise and set as a bright star in the night sky of the planet as it orbited Alpha Centauri B, bringing slight illumination to the dark wasteland every few days. But for half of the Binary star's year around each other, the night side would be left in total blackness.

decided to do another poster of another famous system, the kepler-62 system. this one is kinda overdue. i also plan on doing more of these for other planetary systems out there, so keep an eye out for them!;)

you can read more about this system here:

so please enjoy and leave any comments, favs or critiques which are always welcome and appreciated!:D

  • Eating: whatever tastes good

uhhhhhhhhh, its been more than a year since my last journal entry, and like a few months since my last major post. i really do apologize for the very long  hiatus in artwork as i have been very busy over the summer. but i did spend a lot of the time working on new artwork and especially stocks.
you should see the stock images soon and the artwork in maybe a week as i need to re-inspire myself to create more space art. not to worry though as i haven't lost my spark for space art yet, nor do i ever plan on losing it!;)
so again, i am very sorry for the long wait, but i do promise you that you will see some artwork soon.;)

SO... im quiet natured, calm, barely talks (i talk mainly when i have something interesting to say):) and is constantly thinking of something. i love to cook, draw and make new art, i am also interested in architechure, biology, chemistry, SOME physics and genetics and in the future hopes to become a genetic and chenical engineer!:) i'm also a huge fan of space and space art!:D when i"m not doing anything in school im mainly thinking of my characters and new ones or my space art (but i mainly listen to music)
Also, and most importantly! my love for science has no boundaries!

Well that sorta sumerizes me and i hope i become a great deviant like all the others on da!:D

Favourite genre of music: rock, slight metal and gothic rock, pop rock, techno, electro, dubstep, sountrack from games
Favourite style of art: manga, space art, sci-fi, anthro, digital
