Space Colony Art from the 1970s

Ever sat at work daydreaming about living in space? Then you’ll be pleased to know that NASA has enormous teams working on space-habitation. In the likely case of us having to flee our planet, we’ll hopefully be able to whizz up to these pods where there are barbecues, golf, parks and suspension bridges waiting for us (Phew! Thank god they’ve got suspension bridges up there, I’d definitely miss those). Check out these insanely cool (though sadly rejected) designs for space houses from the 1970s and remember – these are not just musings, they are real designs, made by real NASA.
