Slayer! Thanks for another fine thread, my friend! SnF natch.
Personally, I don't mind that these have been posted before... the search here is allegedly dodgy so new members may not be aware of these things
even if they tried. Pay no mind to the self-appointed "posted before" police. Silliness.
Anyway, the photo set is rather enjoyable and rather intriguing. That's one heck of a "blanket," man. Although admittedly as eager as anyone to
find high strangeness, especially in space, I can, nevertheless actually accept it as an engineered insulation piece. With a bit of a grain of
In another lifetime I was an automotive technician for German and Italian cars and especially in later models we had quite a few insulation pieces
that were semi-solid and molded to fit an area snugly. Never thought to call them a blanket though, but that nomenclature would certainly fit, at

The basic shape can to my eye be seen in all but one, maybe two shots. It just gives one an odd feeling that it isn't flat... not flat in that it's

I like the whole set but for expediency chose to see what happened if a couple of Adobe apps were applied to my favorite image and appropriate knobs
were twirled... the result of that little sortie lies below.
Worked up at 300dpi off the source link but of course on your screen it will be at 72, as are all monitors. Don't think it much matters, though,
Couldn't really coax much more out of it than the version in the OP, (blackness of space and all that), but it's cool.
And thanks for the videos, too. I like a lot of the objects in them very much, even more than the OP's featured photo set. There is one object among
them that was long claimed to be a drop of water which I now think is accurate... but as for most of the others... in no way, shape or form are they
OK, browser's functional again... best hit reply. Started this at the top of page 4... sigh.
