This fictional toroidal (doughnut-shaped) space colony, illustrated by Rick Guidice, is one of many artistic renderings that were born out of an art program at NASA’s Ames Research Center in the 1970s. Ames scientists conducted three different studies into how humans may one build massive space colonies.

Artistic endeavors like these help form connections between science and the public, acting as valuable tools in illustrating NASA’s explorations and discoveries. Though the NASA Art Program isn’t as vast as it used to be, makers and creators continue working with NASA scientists and engineers to create visually engaging concept art and animations, like the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Exoplanet Planet Travel Bureau.

这个虚构的环形(甜甜圈形状)太空殖民地,由里克·吉迪斯(Rick Guidice)绘制,是20世纪70年代美国宇航局艾姆斯研究中心(Ames Research Center)的一个艺术项目中诞生的众多艺术效图之一。艾姆斯的科学家们进行了三项不同的研究,研究人类如何建造规模的太空殖民地。

像这样的艺术努力有助于形成科学与公众之间的联系,在说明NASA的探索和发现方面发挥着宝贵的工具作用。虽然NASA的艺术项目已经不像以前那么庞大了,但制作者和创造者仍在继续与NASA的科学家和工程师合作,创造视觉上吸引人的概念艺术和动画,就像NASA喷气推进实验室系外行星旅游局。
