Making the future…part one:

My take on O’Neil Cylinders.

A possible representation of habitation in space is an O’Neill cylinder. It’s a “county” size cylinder spinning on his axis and thus generating gravity.

The central pole can be used as a lighting rod, an artificial sun.

One of the most efficient ways to live in space. If we had cheap earth orbit transportation, we could do it with our current technology

CGI Illustration, a personal project done with Corona, 3ds Max and Photoshop, testing how much futurology can you fit in 64 GB of RAM.

The answer is at least an O’neil Cylinder!

Enjoy and stay tuned for more…
