Visit the Offworld Colonies, 70’s Style

Bernal Spheres Way back in the 70’s NASA commissioned a few studies on what long term space colonies might be like. Many artistic renderings were done as visual aids and have become icons of a future that might have been. I remember seeing these on the pages of Starlog and Future magazine when I was a little kid and wanted more than anything to live among the stars. Well, that didn’t happen. Closest I’ve come to it is working with computers, flying a lot and watching loads of Science Fiction movies.
The educational resources are simply a joy to browse through. I mean, where else are you going to find data on low-g agriculture and a Ringworld simulator?
