Space Habitat Types:
  • Aerostats are massive cities floating in the upper cloud layers of Venus.
  • Beehives are tunnel warrens inside asteroids and moons.
  • Clusters are microgravity habitats consisting of interconnected modules.
  • Cole bubble habitats are hollowed-out asteroids, terraformed on the inside, and also spun for gravity.
  • Dome habitats are massive domes built on the surface of moons, asteroids, or Mars.
  • Hamilton cylinders are self-building advanced nanotech habitats designs.
  • O’Neill cylinder habitats are like large soda cans, only huge, over a kilometer wide and several kilometers long. The interior is terraformed and the entire cylinder is spun for light gravity. O’Neill cylinders are sometimes paired together, end to end.
  • Reagan cylinders are an inefficient type of O’Neill cylinder, built by hollowing a cylinder within a spinning asteroid.
  • Tin can habitats are small, cramped, cheap, modular boxes, typically used in early space colonization.
  • Torus habitats are big donuts or wheels, spun so that the outer rim has gravity. The interior spokes are zero-G.
