Great A'Tuin, the star turtle, bears the Discworld through space [1680x1050]

Created for the NASA Remix Challenge #3 - Beyond the Rings

 

Original images: TITAN Beyond the Rings and Skylab Over Earth from NASA, APOD.

 

Many thanks to Arno & Louise for one of the bull elephant images; to Picture Taker 2 for the other big bull; and to John Spooner for his image from which I acquired feet for Berilia and Tubul, two of the four elephants carrying the Discworld.

 

Thanks as well to nacaseven for the sea tortoise and to kla4067 for the photo of Mt. Fuji that became Cori Celesti, the home of Discworld's numerous Gods (it's that tiny bump in the center of Discworld). Finally, thanks to the Hubble for the background star field.
