Lost Dream of Space Colonies

Before Elysium, the notion of a colonies in space (as opposed to other planets and satellites) was covered long ago. On a related note, has anyone read Ringworld by Larry Niven? It’s on my to-read list, but that list gets longer everyday. In the meantime, this article comes with cool photos. Enjoy.

  1. Free space colonies have a greater potential than colonies on moons and other planets. Given asteroidal resources in our Solar System, free space colonies can house a much larger population than the surfaces of the Moon, Venus (if terraformed), Mars and the moons of the Outer Planets combined.
