Space Station "Clarke" Concept

Share it Please

I came across this concept art on my daily trawl and really liked to look of it. Duncan Law-Green over at Rocketeers.co.uk made it together with Feguimel from Deviant Art. It's basically a small Stanford torus made up from inflatable modules, spinning to provide 1/10th to 1/20th of Earth gravity. I like it because of its relative simplicity and feasibility. I really hope we'll start seeing things like this sooner rather than later.

I like the extra UK touch with the Skylon space plane on its way to dock with the station. That's definitely a project to keep an eye on over the coming years!
