The View of the Space Elevator Is Beautiful From Here

Illustration for article titled The View of the Space Elevator Is Beautiful From Here

If you want to get a good look at the long tether linking the space elevator platform planetside to the orbital station they built inside a hollow asteroid, you really need to be in orbit. I come to the forward viewing deck to see it whenever I can.

This lovely image is from Joao Silva, one of the students taking the Feng Zhu Design course. It was posted as part of a giant treasure trove of student art from this term. You can revel in it all on their website.

There's a pretty clear signature, Joao Silva (not the photographer, I presume). Probably a good place to start.
