100 Space Landmarks

Watermarked PDF

This is a collection of 100 different landmarks that could be found in a space setting. Each has a name that could have been given by those closest to the landmark, and they are large, noteworthy items. The smallest of the landmarks are massive constructions tens of miles or more in size. The largest span many light years of space. Some may be natural but others seem to decidedly unnatural in origin, perhaps being strange machines, relics or constructions of precursor civilisations, or perhaps simply proof that the universe is large enough that inexplicable things are not merely likely but inevitable. Many of the landmarks are dangerous as space, even at the best of times, is an unsafe environment.

Here are some sample results:

  • The Construct - The Construct is formed from a dozen rocky, terrestrial sized planets that have been bound together into a roughly spherical framework with enormous tubes, each of which is hundreds of miles across and formed from an unknown, but strong, material. The worlds all bear signs of once having had life, and civilisations, on them, but they are now cold and dead, stripped of any atmosphere. Impact craters on the planets and some damage to the joining tubes suggest that the Construct was attacked at some point.
  • Cored - This is a terrestrial planet that appears to have once housed a thriving ecosystem. However, there is an enormous hole in one of the poles and the entire planet's core has been extracted, leaving a lifeless shell behind.
  • Crimson Comet - The comet's colour is only noticeable when it approaches its sun during its 300-year period, when the outgassing produces a coma and tail with a distinctly crimson hue. The colour, which is similar to fresh blood, caused the comet to be considered to be an ill omen, a harbinger of death and destruction, and gave it the earlier name of the Bloody Sword. It still isn't clear what causes the comet's distinctive colouration; it is presumed to be an unusual reaction between the constituent gasses.
  • The Dark - An unusually dusty, and unusually dark, region of space. The dust is far more effective at absorbing light than might be expected. Stars disappear from visibility after only a few light years, their light absorbed by the dust. The dust also absorbs other electromagnetic radiation, and the region is a popular place to hide, but not to live. Some colonies of people in permanent hiding have sprung up, but many find the choking darkness of the skies disturbing.
  • The Dark Tear - A patch of space hundreds of light years across that lacks a single stellar body in it. The Dark Tear is not between galactic arms, where such would be more normal, but within an otherwise-normal stellar area. It would be expected that a star would have drifted into the starless area over the years, but such is not the case. Nor have any smaller bodies been found; no brown dwarves, rocky planets or asteroids. The area appears to be devoid of even stellar dust, and is the most barren area known.

Sorry, I can't download it (nor transfer it to my Dropbox either)!

I'm not having any trouble with downloading the file. It sounds like a technical problem; I've emailed tech support, although there may not be a response from them until Monday now.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
