A model of a Bernal Sphere space station. This is a serious design, it's a bit over a kilometer long. It is considered a very efficient use of mass, as the agricultural torus acts as shielding for the main habitat sphere.

The lighting is not accurate, the Sun should be end-on, but that does not show the details very well.

The spherical habitat counter rotates compared to the two sets of agricultural torus sections. The end stations and the core axis do not rotate.

The trees in the aghricultuiral rings and approacing X33 shuttle give a sense of scale I hope!

And some ortho renders, diagram style.
