Description

An illustration of a relativly simple arrangement of multiple Dyson rings in a more complex form of the Dyson swarm.

To scale.

Sun is accurately colored according to spectral type.

Ring orbital radii are spaced 1.5x10ekm from one another, although the average orbital radius is 1 en:AU.

Collectors are 1.0 x 10e km in diameter, or ~25 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon.

Collectors are spaced 3 degrees from midpoint to midpoint, around the orbital circle.

Camera perspective is from a point ~2.8 AU from the sun.

Rings are rotated 15 degrees relative to one another, around a common axis of rotation.
