Here me first go at a weekly IDOW, see what you think...
The brief was The End of Civilization; a Doombot
i figured there were lots of potential planet killing machines; plague makers, sunfuckers, simple thermonukes, but they dont really look like much, all you see is the effects....a plague machine could just look like a box, or a cloud... aside from giant robots the most spectacular has to be an assault from space, so this is my concept...
1997: a tiny spaceship, the size of a coke can, as black and cold as space arrives in the solar system at 2/5ths the speed of light. It swings around Jupiter and the Sun many times, slowing each time. Finally it slingshots out to arrive gently at an asteroid. It bores into the asteroid dirt and buries itself and begins to make things.
2012: an asteroid heads toward the earth. heroic space shuttle missions and a direct nuclear assault have failed to deflect the rock from its path. it will impact in 2 minutes.
Years earlier, giant sails made from asteroidal carbon and silicon grow out of the object's surface and catch the faint sunlight. Gradually, the gentle light pressure pushes the asteroid out of its stable orbit onto a new path, looping into the inner solar system. (the sails should be thousands of miles accross but you wouldnt see the asteroid at all then...
no one knows why this was done, or who did it. the artefacts on the asteroid havent responded in anyway excpet to repair themselves. first contact is hostile and otherwise silent.
1 minute to impact. in 18 months time the only life on earth will be living around deep ocean vents. its game over for humanity.
