Some people might argue that there are too many small details in this figure, and I guess they might be right about that, but I still kinda like it. This is something I'll try to work on over time.

The final step would be to add animations to this image of which I had a few ideas; I think the easiest effect to implement would be an infinite slow-paced floating up-and-down animation for the satellite, but this is something I will have to explore sometime later.
