Category: Orbital Settlements
Description: Long before a space colony that is to have artificial gravity is brought on line, or even completely built, the colony will have to have a its artificial gravity induced.By letting the Jump Start Halo (JSH) generate the initial revolutions, the space colony can get by with smaller rockets to start its rotation for a near Earth gravity. The JSH is also used as a tug boat allowing the space colony to be built closer to the source material and then flown to its parked orbit.
Medium/Tools Used: Modeled in Rhinoceros. Rendered in Cinema 4D.
