BIS Daedalus, floating in space, 4k

Daedalus was an interstellar probe design from the British Interplanetary Society.

It was a serious design, powered by pulsed nuclear fusion and would be capable of reaching nearby stars for a flyby after a typical flight time of 50 years.

This short video does not show an actual mission phase, just the spacecraft floating in the interstellar void. As it is 4k resolution, I recommend watching the viddeo full screen.

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failed to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I was on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digital formats using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Gaea, and Affinity Photo. I also enjoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, and others.

I'm particularly interested in the early Soviet space program, and I have served as a consultant on that subject.
