Amazing Art of Toroids!

I suppose somewhere in the insanity that was my childhood I was exposed to art and imagery that ingrained itself in my mind and has influenced the kinds of thinking about space and life in the future that I write about.

This recent article from Discover magazine (which I have been reading religiously since middle school, so some 30 years or so) shows 1970s designs commissioned by NASA for potential space colonies and habitats. The full article is about the men behind the art, and this link has a shortcut to 10 of the images.
