Barsoom Station, A Bernal sphere habitat for Mars orbit.

This shows a Bernal sphere type space habitat, the mirrors guide sunlight into the habitation areas.

The design was adapted from an Earth based design with Eagle Sarmont, particularly the mirror arrangements, which would provide Earth-like levels of light and warmth.

Built and rendered in Lightwave 3d.

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failed to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I was on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digital formats using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Gaea, and Affinity Photo. I also enjoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, and others.

I'm particularly interested in the early Soviet space program, and I have served as a consultant on that subject.
