The future for humanity is space. At some point humans will colonize space and build both industry and living spaces between the stars. When it comes to living space, humanity is likely to stay true to its roots and will create structures with artificial (centrifugal) gravity and with space for landscapes and cities. This model represents one of these structures. This space construction is a country sized space habitat ring with a size of that between a bishop ring and a banks orbital. It can also be considered a real life and slightly smaller version of the Halo array from the sci-fi game Halo combat evolved. Thanks to the HD textures and the low poly construction, this model can be used both as a faraway background model, as well as a model for close up use.

Lore and science behind the space habitat This space station/space habitat is a ring shaped construction of approximately 5 km in diameter. By rotating it creates centrifugal force capable of simulating gravity. This simulated gravity feels so real that this station does not even needs to be fully enclosed to hold its atmosphere. As long as the rims are high enough, this ring will hold on to its atmosphere just like a planet would. The size of this station would provide an extremely large amount of living area for future humans. Just the surface alone could house at least a billion people. on top of that, the rims that hold the atmosphere double as living area as well, allowing for apartments with a perfect high-rise type of view over the surface of the ring world. In order to create a construction of this grandeur would take a lot of construction work and can be considered unreachable in this century or even the one after this. Even so, even with current level of technology a construction like this is possible to be build. Even although a construction like this would be under a lot of stress from its rotation, by using a combination of our strongest materials and forms of active support, a ring like this can be build without needing any form of sci-fi explanation or new technologies. So one could say that it is only a matter of time until humanity will build one of these.

In real life, this construction would have a diameter of around 5.000 km in diameter. Some 3d programs do not display objects of this size very well. In order to avoid complications, and because most users want to decide the exact diameter themselves, the model itself is not scaled to the real life size. The air in this model is build up out of two layers, the clouds and the atmosphere. The atmosphere is made using the facing layer weight node in Blender to create a realistic increase in blue density depending on angle. Because the node system is different in each 3d program, the atmosphere layer might be solid instead of transparent. this means you might need to recreate this effect by using the native node system in your program of choice, or delete this layer.
