Continent-Sized Rotating Space Habitats

Get a free month of Curiosity Stream:
Mankind’s future is among the stars, but not necessarily on other planets. Instead we might forge giant space stations that are entire artificial worlds, and today we’ll explore some of those megastructure designs, like the McKendree Cylinder, Bishop Rings, Banks Orbital, Topopolis, and more.
