Project description

In the 1970s space colonies were considered to be a viable alternative to a life restricted to planet Earth. The design of cylindrical space colonies, starting with Werner van Braun's 1954 "Marsprojekt series" and taken to the next step 2 decades later by Gerard O'Neill,...

All my proposals are of peaceful environments, places to relax rather than places to be entertained. There is too much stimuli around us now as it is, I think people need to re-connect with nature and learn/appreciate doing nothing. It's a beeautiful thing to be able to sit in nature and observe. If the Space Collective would be a group...

I can't transcribe ideas directly to a computer as well as I would to a physical sheet of paper; but oftentimes when I write by hand the ideas and sentences are all over the place because I pay less attention to mechanics. Regardless, I wrote this blurb earlier (forgive the incoherencies): What "nature" is to me It's vast, isolated,...

My second option would also be intended for a shorter period of time as a recuperating experience. It would primarily be an experience for a single person but it would be in the form of a room. There would be a large window in the room so the person could enjoy sunshine and a view. All other walls would be covered with screens that would show...

Turritopsis nutricula -REPRODUCTIVE BIOLOGY Medusae are produced by the hydroid in summer months and can survive in the laboratory for one month. A peculiarity of this species is the possibility of ontogeny reversal under laboratory conditions: the medusae, in fact, can rearrange their tissues and go back to the polyp stage if subjected to...

If I were to build a space colony or space habitat I would want it to be a place where people can continue to be free. All science fiction and renderings of moon colonies seem so restrictive and claustrophobic. I would want a space colony with a built in atmosphere just like the Earth. People could move freely, and in space every direction would...

I wouldn't want much to change - maybe that's depressing or unimaginative or boring but it's the truth. What I admire most about nature is its resilience, no matter how hard we abuse it, it always bounces back, amazingly and surprisingly (although some would argue that at this moment it may be reaching its physical limits). After it's...

What is it I find striking about nature? What aspects of nature would I take with me, what parts would I leave behind; if, let's say, I was moving to the moon - for good. I spend a lot of my time outside, through various outdoor endeavors and I try to not take the little nature that is left in Los Angeles for granted. Escaping to the Santa...

what happens with the perception of time when we have no atmosphere in space? do we adopt a new calender? do we let go of our earthly perception of time itself? what is our basis for time in relation to in space when the earth no longer exists? how can people live with no night or day? what happens to our social constructions of our daily...

It's kind of amazing how we can transfer energy to power something. Think of all the people dancing or in spinning class wasting all that energy. Don't you think America would be thinner if they had to ride a bike in order to watch their television?

Our daily forecast right here. What we tend to forget is the System, and how it is placed and functioning perfectly to allow for human life (humans in our current state of evolution).
