In Jupiter’s Realm

Category: Asteroid Settlements
Description: This image depicts a pair of settlements built on asteroids. 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 9.2 and Photoshop CS3.
