Double Helix from the Goldilocks Zone

This is a sketch for a single turn of DNA at a scale of about  1:170,000,000. It is intended as a larger work, with the bases that constitute the molecular code and the phosphates that make up the double helix to be made from a combination of bronze and stainless steel in the larger versions. Whilst the geometry and science in this sketch is accurate, there is allot more research and work to be done before I make the larger finished works.

I will never be able to look at a group of water molecules, aligned just before freezing. But if I could, this is what they might look like. I have spent allot of time imagining the worlds within that I am not privy to. Worlds that would be beautiful to see, and amazing to visit.
