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。
