@j12i it's the only one I found that's similar to how I imagined the Solaris planet when I first read it

Hello @zabow! I too think it's very true to the book, which I read sometime in the last year, im german though.

@zabow I just didn't want to boost it without image description, but now it does have one, courtesy of the @packbat.s. :flan_wave:

@j12i @zabow @imagecaptionspls Image description for illustration attached to Stanisław Lem quote:

A great red plane, the horizon wreathed in pink fog. A tremendous gash with ragged raised edges winds its way into the far distance. In the foreground, a quad-copter drone flies over the gorge.

A faint watermark in the corner says "Alex Andreev" under a picture of a spider and links to

Thanks @packbat!
Having read the novella, the "quad-copter" might well be of considerable size. Tremendous indeed.
