Space Settlement Art Contest Cassel City Under Glass

City Under Glass

Raymond Cassel
Category: Asteroid Settlements
Winning entry, appeared in 2008 Calendar

Description: This image depicts one of a pair of settlements built on asteroids. The second, similar settlement is built on a nearby asteroid, and the two are connected by a tether. The second asteroid acts as a counterweight so that their rotation provides gravity to both colonies. Supplies are brought to the two colonies through a series of docking stations located at the fulcrum of the tether. Transports along the tether carry supplies and personnel back and forth.

Medium/Tools Used: LightWave 6.5 and Photoshop 5.5.
