Space Settlement Art Contest - Terraston Orbital
Restricted use

Terraston Orbital

By Mark Gearhart
Category: Orbital Settlements (or Asteroid Settlements)

Description: Terraston Orbital settlement was created from asteroid TS4021. It was one of the first asteroids moved into Earth orbit to form permanent platforms for humanity to explore our universe. The main dome rests upon an experimental artificial gravity generator, simulating .7 Earth norm. Three 'spin' arms are used to create additional centripital gravity living areas as well as gyroscopic balance for the asteroid. The space docks accomodate shuttles, interplanetary and interstellar vehicles.

Medium/Tools Used: I used Bryce and Daz Studio for the objects and PS3 for overall composition. Earth photo courtesy NASA Visible Earth.
