VISIONARY SPACE STATIONS


Real thing: The International Space Station in Orbit

Real thing: The International Space Station in Orbit

Visionary space stations represent the ultimate in fantasy architecture: huge, self-contained human habitations in outer space. There are two fundamentally different visions of the visionary space station. The first is pure fantasy, often pictured as an illustration to a science fiction novel.  The second concept envisions the space station as  a lofty and realizable goal for the human race.
