 Smiley  When I look at designs like the above space station, they look awfully vulnerable to me.  Of course you’d love to have big windows to look out into the vast beauty of outer space.  But there’s a bid difference between glass to keep the dust and rain out of a house and the life and death situation of a broken window in a space station, LOL!

Until force shields are do-able, and not just theory, I think either heavy armor, or the mobility to dodge an asteroid shower is needed first.  And that kind of limits the design possibilities.   Roll Eyes
