Solar Sail Passing Over Earth
Solar Sail Passing Over Earth A concept image of a solar sail propelled spacecraft passing over Earth. Kevin M. Gill

Modeled and rendered using Autodesk Maya with Adobe Photoshop for post-processing. The model is based on no specific design. Sails are shown a bit more inflated than would actually be the case to demonstrate the nature of the propulsion method being utilized.
