HIGH RES SCANS OF NASA SPACE COLONY ARTWORK

These are lifelong favorites of IFOS9000, inspiration for countless daydreams about future colonies in space, and delightfully illustrated in a classic 70s style.

In the 1970s, NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) conducted space colony summer studies on Toroidal Colonies and Bernal Spheres which could hold population of up to 10,000 humans living in space, and on Cylindrical Colonies which could hold a population of 1,000,000.
