NASA's 1970's Futurist Artwork Reveals Ties to Secret Space Programs and Science Fiction – Images of Space Colonies and Stations for 2100 Future

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) According to secret space program insiders Corey Goode and William Tompkins, as well as several other credible sources that have come forward care of Steven Greer's Disclosure Project, we know that the military industrial complex has allegedly been expanding into space since at least the early 1950's and 60's.

These claims are further corroborated by documents furnished by Tompkins, which suggest these secret programs are far more advanced than what the public is capable of accepting but have nevertheless been revealed on mass via the media and science fiction.

Nikola Tesla and Gugliemo Marconi were also key players in the development of ultra advanced secret technology during the 20th Century, some of which might have been used during the World Trade Center attacks on September 11th, 2001.

The following compilation of art commissioned by NASA in the 1970's has all the hallmarks of a soft disclosure. The modus operandi of intelligence services, specifically deep black or Unacknowledged Special Access Programs (USAPs) is to hide key aspects of what is being developed in plain sight, right in front of the public, but under the guise of fiction. As such, the people dismiss any leaked information that sees the light of day.

To be sure, the whole truth about these programs is rarely, if ever, revealed free of distortion or in completion. The conceptual design works produced below have since the time of their initial release, seemingly inspired many different writers, artists—and in modern times—video game developers.

Given that video games are one of the premier media outlets for upcoming generations, one would think that there is a great deal hidden in plain sight there. And for anyone who has played or seen a fair share, it's fairly obvious what is happening.

As one example consider this image from the NASA collection,



Here is close up of one of the centripetal force space stations designed by Gerard O’Neill and his team who were commissioned by NASA to imagineer or come up with designs and images for what future space stations might look like.

Here's another image of the same space station concept art from a wider point of view,



The images produced by the team strongly resemble several fictional works, most notably the space stations depicted in the video game series Mass Effect and the films Interstellar, and Elysium,

All the stations depicted in the fictional works above are based on centripetal force or spinning to produce artificial gravity. While technology spoken of by insiders apparently uses different methods for producing artificial gravity, the overall theme is the same.


The military industrial complex or secret space program has been disclosing information to the public for decades, and arguably science fiction's rise in popularity since the late 1800's was nurtured by clandestine forces that have a keen interest in keeping these topics secret. What better way to hide the truth than give it to the people under the pretense of fiction. This way, even if genuine artifacts, technology, testimony or information makes it out to the public, the people will dismiss it as a hoax or conspiracy theory due to association with similar elements revealed in science fiction.

In an article set to be released in the coming days, a detailed exposé will describe even more connections to the military industrial complex, secret space program, and science fiction. 

Finally, one last point raised by Corey Goode is the issue of partial disclosure. Apparently, factions within the secret space program, along with Earth-based allies in various countries, have agreed to begin a limited disclosure narrative which includes the release of information related to some hidden technology. The plan calls for releasing a narrative which states black budget projects have developed advanced space stations and craft capable of exploring the solar system during the mid to late 20th Century, including the admission of advanced space stations used by the NRO.

In accord with the aforementioned modus operandi, the recently revived science fiction series, The X-Files, laid out the limited disclosure narrative in staggering detail.

But the truth, like the Sun and Moon, cannot remain long hidden. 

At this point, courtesy of dozens of brave whistleblowers, far too much of the whole story has been revealed, but unless humanity seeks for full disclosure, the powers that be will most likely win out in their partial disclosure agenda.

The options for where you can live are vast, with humans now inhabiting every continent, including Antarctica. But what about planets other than Earth? Forty years ago, Nasa released beautiful images of potential space colonies, suggesting that by the year 2100, we could have huge habitats floating around the planet.

By Shivaji Best
  • Retro-futurist artwork was commissioned by Nasa in 1975, to show what potential space colonies could look like
  • The three concepts all used circular designs which would generate centrifugal force to create artificial gravity
  • The largest, named ‘Cylindrical Colony’ could hold up to one million people at a time 
  • The drawings may have inspired ‘Cooper Station’, a satellite seen in Christopher Nolan’s 2014 film ‘Interstellar’
Dr Al Globus, a contractor for the Nasa Ames Research Centre in California, says humanity could soon begin to build space settlements. A space settlement (artist’s illustration) would be a large structure like a town or city that would house hundreds or thousands of people
In the rotating section the force of rotation provides artificial gravity for the inhabitants, letting them move around like they would on Earth. At the centre of the structure though there would be zero-gravity, as there would be no rotation here

WHAT IS A SPACE SETTLEMENT?

A space settlement would be a large structure, comparable in size to a town or small city, built in Earth orbit.

It would have similar amenities and services to towns and cities on Earth, and would enable people to live in space.

The ISS currently houses six astronauts at a time, but a space settlement would have hundreds or thousands of people on board.

Future space settlements may also have artificial gravity by rotating around an axis.


Dr Al Globus, a Nasa contractor and space settlement expert, said: ‘Whether [space settlements]will happen or not is really hard to say. Whether it can happen, absolutely.

‘If we as a people decide to do it, we can do it. We have the scientific capability, financial capability, there is simply no question we can do it.’

The retro-futurist artwork was commissioned by Nasa in 1975, in the hopes of illustrating what potential space colonies could look like.

A team from the Nasa Ames Research Centre, led by Gerard O’Neill, included architects, researchers, and scientists, who assessed whether the ideas were feasible.

An illustrator eventually drew up three concepts to present to Nasa – the Bernal Sphere, the Toroidal Colony and the Cylindrical Colony (which could hold one million people at a time).

The three concepts all used circular designs which would generate centrifugal force to create artificial gravity. They would also all have cast solar arrays to power the rotation.

The inside of each structure showed beautiful grassy landscapes offering comfortable living in modern homes.

Dr Globus said it would be ‘a place to live, raise your kids, where your friends and family have Thanksgiving dinner and celebrate Christmas, and visit Earth on vacation.’

Mr O’Neill speculated that with the right technological developments, construction could begin as soon as 1990.

This may seem optimistic in hindsight, but at the time the designs were drawn up, advances in space technology were booming – the last manned mission to the Moon was three years previous and Skylab, the United States’ first space station, was orbiting Earth.


Many designs rely upon a central cylinder around which is a rotating habitat (artist’s illustration shown). In the rotating section the force of rotation provides artificial gravity for the inhabitants, letting the move around like they would on Earth

The illustration shows that the Bernal Structure might even be able to have agriculture, while the outer hull would need to be partially covered in solar cells

While the timeline for the space settlements is up for debate, Dr Globus is confident it will happen sooner or later.

He said: ‘In two or three decades we might have a couple of small hotels [in orbit], and people moving in on a regular basis.

‘All that is on a time scale measured in decades, or in the worst case centuries.’

However starting to build a space settlement now is not a good idea, he added, as technology and infrastructure are not yet sufficient.

He says we need to progress through several hoops before settling in space can become a viable option.

One of these is space tourism. Several private companies such as Boeing and SpaceX are busy building manned spacecraft, while others like Bigelow Aerospace are planning to build ‘space hotels’.

In the forty years since Mr O’Neill’s designs, many people have taken inspiration and created their own derivatives.

One of the most well known of these is ‘Cooper Station’, a satellite seen in Christopher Nolan’s 2014 film ‘Interstellar’, which many suggest was based on the Cylinder Colony.

But living in space does not have to stop at orbiting Earth.

Once a large, floating colony has been built, Dr Globus explains that other locations in the solar system can be explored.

Perhaps, using asteroids for additional material, a space settlement could be placed around the Martian moons Phobos and Deimos.

It may yet be centuries before an object the size of O’Neill’s colonies is ever constructed in space. For now we’ll have to live with the images of what might have been — and what, just possibly, might still be to come.
