Couldn't Resist

OK, so I love Frank Herbert's "Dune" series, though I haven't read all the recent additions his son and compatriots have added to the series. But, the original canon books are da' stoneburner. I'll translate that from nerd: are da' bomb. That being said, I have kept thinking of the view of the current remains of the Dome in this fashion (and couldn't resist not seeing what this would look like):

Last night we did some more filming for the SPIFF, both at the ceremonial Pole marker and at the Beer Can. The latter Polar architectural feature's official name is the Vertical Tower, which seems ludicrously redundant to me. We're hitting the crunch time to get everything shot so the director has enough time to edit the video and overlay our soundtrack.

“And that day dawned when Arrakis lay at the hub of the universe with the wheel poised to spin.”
~from "Arrakis Awakening" by the Princess Irulan, Dune

"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the sand; and he had two horns like a lamb, but his mouth was fanged and fiery as the dragon and his body shimmered and burned with great heat while it did hiss like the serpent."
~Revised Orange Catholic Bible, Children of Dune
