Yesterday we brought you some stunning spaceship concept art from the space movie After Earth, by artist Colie Wertz. Now here's another batch, covering the spaceships and cities in the film, from artist Emmanuel Shiu. Exclusively at io9!

Shiu worked on environments and spaceships for this movie, and you can see for yourself that the world-building in After Earth included some really neat design ideas. Love the way some of these spaceships look like they're alive.

DISCUSSION

This is great and all, and these artists clearly got an eye for something, but I'd much prefer spaceship concept art to take into account already well known science: Nuclear/antimatter power generation geometries, micrometeorite impacts at high velocities, what plasma bubble shields would actually require, special relativity, basic ideas of torque, force, and impulse, and/or alcubierre drive warp bubble necessities. Because without considering the real science, you can't really envision a possibly real ship.
