Caption: Fractal 3-D geometry. Computer graphic image entitled Space Station with a false-colour sky added in the background. The image was derived from the Mandelbrot fractal equation f(z)= z*z + c where z is a complex number and c a complex constant. Fractal images are usually generated in the complex plane where a number z has two coordinates. In this case a 3-D image has been obtained by giving each point of the complex plane a different height according to the time needed by the fractal equation, when iterated in a given point, to reach either the infinite or zero.
