The Solar Wind is a stream of energized particles, primarily electrons and protons, flowing outward from the sun.
The picture is a beautifuly imagined group of space yachts with their huge solar sails deployed to catch the wind from the sun.
Clarke imagined a race like the America's Cup only with the whole solar system as it's backdrop.
The man did not think small.

Yep. And I'm sure reality will go further than fiction!

I love the brush-strokes and the texture! Really great painting and great composition. What medium did you use?

No recordi esa imagen. Me encanta totalmente ! Me recorda un poquito de John Harris o Manchu tambien. Ah, y el diseno de los naves tiene un poco de "Homeworld" !
Haces buenas imagenes del espacio. Sigue ! ;)

Gorgeous! I've never read the story, but... am I wrong to say the shapes presumably trailing behind the spacecraft remind me of parachutes?
