Once you go there to check it out, you’ll appreciate why. It’s mesmerizing. It’s amazing. It’s engaging. And the station is fully aware, floating in the heavens above the planets.
The scale and complexity of this futuristic being are difficult to describe and to capture in photos. Really, it’s a creation that’s best experienced firsthand.

To give an idea of size, that’s me in the photo above (barely visible just above the right “arm,” blurred back into the blue somewhat in the neighborhood of the mid-upper right corner) traversing the expanse of this sentient being.

“Rising in Light” can be found in Extropia Core. The build was inspired by Orion’s Arm Universe Project and its “…vast interstellar empires.” Indeed, when you visit, you’ll want to stay for a while. Because no matter how you look at it, “Rising in Light” is not only vast…it makes an absolutely huge impact.
